Copying is Bad. Accusation.
I had posted on the museum ‘San’ located in Wonjo of Gangwon province in Korea by Ando Dadao who is the Japanese world famous architect. I had been there when it was raining.
I am his big fan. I love his architectures, the sense of Art and the attitude toward his job.
One day I had strolled around the downtown in Youngsan area of Seoul to wait for my friend.
There I saw the building looked like similar to the architecture of Ando Dadao.
It looked like really nice, so I took the pics of that building.
It was the local office building. At first, I was really pleased.
But as getting closer to that building, I was so disappointed. That building was not original but the fake.
It looked like some one copied Ando Dadao.
As I mentioned before relating to the characteristics of the Works by Ando Dadao, there were small holes on the surfaces of the wall. His works were famous for the nude building. He did not use the paint or other things to protect the walls of the building.
Those small holes were used for the function to exhibit the works without any damage on the wall.
The exhibition was held on the wall along the corridor at that time.
Then if they filled up those holes, how they could exhibit the works on the wall.
The gray color of the cement and the holes on the wall were the trade mark of Ando Dadao.
But in this building, the holes were filled up to escape the accusation.
It was so shamed.
This building was made with the budget of the government.
How dare the office building could be copied.
I was really sorry. Until now I could not understand why the local government did like that.
