The purpose of this thesis project was to preserve the traditional elements of Han-Ok in the modern architecture in Korea. I have integrated traditional Korean design elements into modern architecture. I also solved the problems that the Han-Ok currently faces. This topic is important because a lot of the traditional culture has been disappearing within the current Korean society. Of all the aspects of Korean traditional culture, the Han-Ok, the Korean traditional house itself, is very important. A lot of Korea's culture is represented in the Han-Ok, but people think this type of architecture is unnecessary and uncomfortable, and because of this people are pursuing another direction. It is important in our society to preserve the traditional culture from the past to pass on to future generations. I researched every component of the Han-Ok itself; identifying the weaknesses of the house, Korean traditional culture, and modern architecture.
Finally integrated the Korean traditional style into modern architecture. The scope of my thesis focused heavily on the areas of architecture, camera movement, and 3D modeling within this industry.
