HONGIK UNIVERSITY / SEOUL, KOREA
Like the prehistoric caves full of old traces,
this space is an audio archive for the future nomads who constantly travel around the world.
Open Cave is a monumental space that can keep personal stories
that will eventually constitute overall human history.
The caves are placed in the airport lounge, where the busy traveling nomads can easily stop by.
Travelers sit inside the caves to talk about their times and stories of the city they are about to leave.
The cave-like shape not only provides the user with enough personal space to talk,
but it also makes sure the decent audio quality of the individual voice.
They can later access to these records on a mobile application.
Open caves placed all over the airport weigh more on per-individual/personal attributes,
less on per-nation/ collective attribute regarding the historical archives.
