Designed by 13 well-known international architects, 13 follies are intended to play an interactive role in historical urban center in Gwangju. Far from being merely nice looking public objects, they will take over certain roles of existing public programs, encouraging the public to become more interested while utilizing them as a part of their everyday life and eventually participate in the city. Obviously as if catalysts activated latent chemical processes, it would lead to revitalization of the entire city so as to regenerate the old city center. Consequently, whilst they are to be fused into the existing urban fabric, as a whole they are intended to play a crucial role in the city by providing a public field for citizens to react to. As a practical means of building follies in the city as well as easing administrative process of ensuring possible sites, the follies should be a type of hybrid between unused public spaces and indispensible services. By incorporating public space and programs, follies will play an essential role to the public as well as it enhances the whole process of exhibition. The Gwangju Design Biennale will serve as an opportunity to recover the notion of place in the city by means of distributing 13 follies in the city and trigger the active participation from the public into their environment, which eventually helps to regenerate the old town center.
