Mission Statement

Of course, there are agencies that deal with cultural landscapes and associated architecture, heritage, habitat (rural, urban, peri-urban) planning and conservation and envisioned cultural landscape as heritage resource for sustainable development at different degrees, still there has not been any prime organisation that should deal Asia in its own historically rooted cultural forms.To fulfil this noble task and demand of the global scenario in which cultural landscape is not taken only as an impediment to development, but a heritage resource that can contribute to maintain environment and landscape serene in its nature, cleanliness in outlook, aesthetically beautiful, eco-friendly in interrelationship,socially cohesive, culturally awakened ― in order to make Man-Nature integration and aliveness more sustainable, the ACLA (Asian Cultural Landscape Association) has been formed recently and declared on 3rd of December 2012; registered in Rep. Korea (SNU Seoul): Reg. No.: 119-82-11132. The ACLA shall highlight the ‘Cultural Landscapes as Living Cultural-Sustainable Resources’; foster the safeguard and sustainable use of the unique and diverse cultural landscapes and heritagescapes of Asian Region; promote the physical, natural and cultural heritagescapes, traditions, crafts and creativity as driving forces for overall sustainable landscape development.

Since he was a child, Sung-Kyun Kim had paid lots of attention to the natural environment and Korean traditional culture in his homeland, in Korea. Sung was born in the city of Mungyeong-si, three years after the end of the Korean war. The history which divided the country on the Korean peninsula into two, North Korea and South Korea. Sung's hometown is approximately 200 km from Seoul City by bus, and 153 km by train. Its location is southeast of the capital.Sung-Kyun Kim experienced the period when the Korean population was experiencing food difficulties. His family of eight children also lived a life of worry, only being able to eat pine tree bark which is processed into delicious food by his mother. His father, a teacher and school principal, once said, "Sung, study hard, so you can improve our country, we inherit nature and culture from our ancestors, which are very beautiful and good for building the quality of human life." Sung was a good listener, he also remembered his father's words, "Sung, Indonesia is a country with good agricultural products, learn from the Indonesian people too."From his father's words, Little Sung was used to paying attention to natural scenery and always tried to understand the meaning of the natural beauty of his country's landscapes.In his childhood and youth, Sung also saw environmental conditions that were degraded due to foreign power domination, especially in the name of 'Marshal Plan' by America. The country, especially Seoul, the capital, were degraded, as the impact of the large-scale development in South Korea.Sung was not only a good listener, he was also a true witness. The habit of observing nature and witnessing natural beauty gave birth to his artistic potential, namely drawing and painting landscapes. Since his youth, Sung has been fond of painting, both on paper and on canvas. Some of his works are natural landscapes, the beautiful landscapes of his hometown, Mungyeong-si.BACKGROUND OF ACLAAsian countries have a long history and developed distinctive landscape cultures. However, Asian cultural landscape researches are still in infancy, especially when most of Asian landscapes have been studied based on Westerners’ point of view.We need to discuss these issues from Asian point of view in order to find our own identity, and plan & design our future world with these cultural landscapes.The Embryo of ACLAAlthough the word ‘Nujeongwon’ is not mentioned in the "Winding River Village, Poetics of a Korean Landscape", in the PhD dissertation book of Sung-Kyun Kim, the spirit of this book is ‘Nujeongwon’. It can be discovered after analyzing each chapter, especially chapter six, namely THE SIXTEEN BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPES.It was a very deep, comprehensive and continuous research since Sung-Kyun Kim was in his Master of Arts study, in University of Pennsylvania, USA 1984 ~ 1987.Actually, ‘Nujeongwon’ -- as the core of ACLA’s mission -- was firstly mentioned in an event organized by Chinese Society of Landscape Architecture. The event was an international conference with theme “The Universality and Regionality of Landscape Culture in East Asian Region". Prof. Sung-Kyun Kim submitted and spoke of his paper and presentation with title of Structure and Meaning of a Korean Nujeongwon”. The event was held in Tokyo, Japan in August 2006.In 2009, Sung-Kyun Kim had to undergo brain surgery because he had been working so hard for a very long time. For more than twenty years he only slept 3 to 4 hours a day.The idea of organizing the spirit of Asian cultural landscape arose in his consciousness while he was in suspended animation during his brain surgery until a few hours before he returned to the mundane realm. It happened in early August 2009*.When he recovered from a critical condition after the surgery, he again reflected on the identity of the Asian landscape, especially the Korean landscape.Logo - The overall ACLA logo expressed ACLA is a Asia-based platform that providing Asians a democratic roundtable for discussing about Asian Cultural Landscapes. - It is also a metaphysical exposition of the aims and objectives of this foundation: ‘A’ symbolises the beginning and returning (‘A’) through the cyclic notion of continuity ‘C’, and attached ‘L’ denotes the locomotive function of longevity.

September 1 – 4 2009, IFLA APR Cultural Landscape Committee (IFLA APR CLC) held an event at Songdo Convensia, Incheon Metropolitan City, South Korea. The theme of the Congress is Green Culture in Cities. Tong Mahn Ahn led the congress, Sung Kyun Kim led the Student Charrette. The ACLA embryo had existed since then in Prof. Sung-Kyun Kim's upper womb, in his skull.

ACLA Fetal GrowthThere were some international events organized by Prof. Sung-Kyun Kim and team, before he declared the ACLA as an official organization. And, Chun Hyun-Jin was involved in them devotedly.From contemplation after contemplation, Sung-Kyun Kim came to the realization that we in Asia need to discuss about this problem from an Asian perspective to find our own identity, to plan and design our future world with our cultural landscape in Asia. And, along with this idea as well, he formulated the term of “Nujeongwon” in this way:Nujeongwon is “an exterior space, organized visually and conceptually as a whole, centered around Nujeong building.” I start with this new definition for the Korean landscape, because we cannot explain it in terms of the Western concept of a garden, such as, “the artificial and fenced area decorated for aesthetic and practical purposes.”In 2010 and 2011, Sung-Kyun Kim declaratively used the term "Nujeongwon" in three international scientific meetings, namely:At the IFLA APR Cultural Landscape Committee meeting, 14 ~ 17 December 2010, in Seoul, Korea, with the title of the paper and presentation: Sustainable Korean Landscape Garden, “Nujeongwon”. Resolved document in the Proceedings of the 2010 IFLA APR Cultural Landscape Committee International Symposium, on pages 18-23.As invited speaker in Tallin, Estonia at the Landscape Architecture Congress, 2~4 November 2011, Mind the Gap: Landscapes for a New Era, EFLA Regional Congress of Landscape Architecture, Sung-Kyun Kim presented “Sustainable Landscape and Aesthetics in Korean Traditional Landscape Parks , Nujeongwon.”Again, Sung-Kyun Kim at the IFLA APR Cultural Landscape Committee meeting, 5 ~ 8 December 2011, in Seoul, Korea, with the title of his paper and presentation: Sustainable Korean Traditional Landscape Garden, “Nujeongwon”. Resolved document in the Proceedings of the 2011 IFLA APR Cultural Landscape Committee International Symposium, on pages 31-40.

In 2012, Sung-Kyun Kim worked on a research project for the Korean ministry of environment, which was intended to form the basis for policy formulation for the Natural Park Master Plan. Sung-Kyun Kim focused his research with Nujeongwon's perspective.ACLA’S BIRTH AND THE INTERNATIONAL EVENTSStill in the same year, on December 3 2012, in Kuala Selangor, Malaysia, Sung-Kyun Kim as the founder accompanied by several members -- including Hyun-Jin Chun, the PhD student under his academic guidance -- officially declared the formation Asian Cultural Landscape Association, ACLA. The event was attended by participants of the third IFLA APR CLC symposium. The composition of the participants, 2 from Korea, 1 from Japan, 1 from Hong Kong, 1 from Indonesia, 1 from India, 1 from Thailand, 1 from Singapore and 13 from Malaysia. So, this symposium is also the 1st ACLA International Symposium.

Sung-Kyun Kim was also involved in the “Seoul City Planning for the Next Century” or also called “Seoul Planning Charter” which lasted from 2012 to 2015. Seoul prepared an Urban Planning Charter for the next 100 years as the basis for city planning administration, providing long-term direction and consistent.The process incorporates a 100 year sustainable urban planning philosophy, the Charter was finalized by 170 representatives of Seoul citizens. At the theme selection stage, there were 21 experts, 3 members of the Seoul Metropolitan Council, and 6 civil society people. Sung-Kyun Kim is one of the 21 experts. The entire process started from 16 August 2012 to 10 September 2015 (declaration and follow-up).

During the period mentioned above, Prof. Kim is often accompanied by his student, Hyun-Jin Chun, they become close friends in discussing matters related to environmental sustainability, quality of life, and Korean culture, as an important part of Asia as a whole.The 2nd ACLA International Symposium was held the following year, precisely on 12 ~ 14 October 2013 in Seoul, Korea with the theme "Meanings & Aesthetics in Asian Cultural Landscape" and Kim-Sung-Kyun presented "Meaning and Aesthetics of a Korean Traditional Landscape: Focusing on Hahoe Gyeomam-Okyeonjeong” (about Nujeongwon in Hahoe village), this was documented in the Proceedings of the 2013 ACLA International Symposium. October 12 ~ 14, 2013 in Seoul, Korea, on pages 39-46.

The 4th ACLA International Symposium was held in Bali, 11 ~ 13 September 2015 with the theme "Agricultural Landscapes of Asia: Learning, Preserving, and Redefining". The event was organized by Landscape Architecture Department, Udayana Unuiversity, namely Naniek Kohdrata.

In the same year, 2015 November, Sung-Kyun Kim had the opportunity to hold a Solo Design Exhibition at Yanbian University, China. Lafent reported the event as follows:Professor Kim Sung-Kyun held a solo exhibition in China

Sung-Kyun Kim, in his presentation gave an example of how to create a sacred landscape garden by applying the principles and values of pungsu and Nujeongwon, namely Bongyudongcheon which is located in his homeland. The event in Lampang, Thailand was the 5th ACLA International event.

From 22 to 24 July 2017, the 6th ACLA symposium was held in Vladivostok, Russia, with the theme "Urban Cultural Landscape and Urban Regeneration". It was the 6th ACLA International event.

Then, still in 2019, October 9-10 to be precise, he as the keynote speaker attended the ACLA Conference in Johor, Malaysia, with the theme "Perception and Aesthetics of Cultural Landscape in Asia", he explained again about Nujeongwon. In sequence, this conference is the 9th ACLA International event. At the moment, Prof. Sung-Kyun Kim and Assoc.

In West Java, he gave guest lectures at IPB and at ITB.In fact, all of the guest lecture materials that come from the results of research and design projects and even those that have already been implemented are closely related to Nujeongwon. Because Nujeongwon's philosophy and principles have become Sung-Kyun Kim's character.Prof. Kim stayed in Bali for 12 days, from 1 to 12 March 2020. On that occasion, he continued to write research on the historical relationship between the City of Ayodhya, India and the City of Gimhae, Korea.
