In order to attract a creative, rational, and optimal master plan that will help Yongsan Park to achieve the vision and aims stated in its General Basic Plan, the Taskforce is recruiting bright and original designs from talented, bright designers invited from around the world.
The project site is a large area in the centre of Seoul with a total area of circa 243 ha that has been in use as a military base for an extensive period both during the Japanese occupation and under post-War American protection. The vision of the competition, as described in the brief, is to create a park in which nature, culture, history and the future are in harmony. It will be a park which restores, sublimates, and expands upon the history and local characteristics of the area. This park shall regain the respect for nature and reclaims the lost and damaged ecological system. It will eventually become a park of new urban culture for the preservation of green spaces and a sustainable future.
