Church Tower


A temporary sculptural structure in the form of a church tower is erected and draped in ruched fabric, acting as a copy of an original tower.

In Korea, all Protestant churches have an identically shaped structure. The growing number of these structures have become one of the most distinctive features of contemporary Korean cities, reflecting Korea’s history of Christianity that encouraged widespread education and Western modernisation after the nation’s independence and World War II.
