Regeneration / Yongsan Park

Ideas Competition for Yongsan Park, Honorable Mention
Seoul, Korea, 2009
Client : Minister of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs, Seoul, Korea
Team :  Sang Dae Lee, Isaac Brown, Helen Choi, Wilson Rodas

The area of central Seoul which has been occupied by the US military since the Korean War will soon be reborn as Yongsan Park. The site’s long history as a military location – it was also used by the Japanese as a camp during their invasion - has seriously damaged and malformed its urban structure within Seoul. Consequently, the return of this site to Korea should consider its symbolic import and should be a space of aspiration as well as projecting a futuristic image as a world Class Park for the people of Seoul.
