'Bridging Home, London', 2018 by Do Ho Suh is an ambitious commission, a UK premiere, installed on the footbridge over Wormwood Street – one of the busiest roads in the City of London, near Liverpool Street.

Do Ho Suh’s architecturally scaled installations are informed by his personal experiences, that recreate specific domestic spaces that he has resided in, expanding on his ongoing investigations of memory, notions of home and migration, cross-cultural displacement and integration.

'Bridging Home' is a series that Suh has been conceptualising over the last decade. The piece is a replica of the traditional Hanok-style Korean house adorned with a bamboo garden, that appears to have ‘fallen’ onto the bridge at an angle. Upon the invitation to respond to the migrant history of the East End and the City of London, Suh has conceptualised the first physical realisation of the 'Bridging Home' series, drawing parallels with his work and the impact of migration on individual stories, contrasting with the glass and steel architecture of the City of London.
