Busan River City

Poros[c]ity, whose corridors allow to continuously circulate between Human behavior and the logistics of basic information.

We propose Poros[c]ity in an effort to maximize the chance for the urban dweller to interact with nature and enjoy their flexibility of relaxation. This enriches the waterfront ecosystem originated from Nakdong river mouth.
Normal city, which is covered with dense infrastructure and disconnection of its suburban environment doesn’t have competitive power in the global market any more. The city should have an ability to be self sustainable as well as open to the flow of surrounding environments. For example, tree absorbing nutrients through thousands of water veins or a sponge absorbing the water through its porousness. These elements make the city possible for it to continuously breathe with its surrounding environment. it is not only a system of flow for logistics, but also a margin line that provides relaxation for the citizen that can be enlarged with a natural ecological environment.
Poros[c]ity allows nature to permeate and ecologically grow. Cultural deposits composing of water and green land are driven from these composites and are permeated into urban nodes. This plays as a lymph to link various districts and create a boundary between architecture and nature.

Poros[c]ity creates logistical flow. It provides a corridor for logistic and business as a focal city in the Northeastern Asian economy as well as European Asian flow.
Poros[c]ity provides a foundation of support and connection with its surrounding industrial districts. It also provides various paths to strongly support surrounding industrial complex composing of education, manufacturing distributions and maritime industry.
Poros[c]ity provides facilities in compliance with world class city. It proposes a convention center, integrated logistical terminals, international schools, foreign language schools, and various laboratories.
These will be connected to international business districts as well as transformational circulation hubs.
Conventional city separates itself from green space and the urban fabric. The city is composed of multiple identities and saturated with compressed circulation complex surroundings.
Poros[c]ity allows for permeation and cohesive green space with its urban environment. Its organic nature and multi facetted synergy creates various activity as a combination of green space and public facilities.
