Winners selected for 'Stadium of Tomorrow' competition

A team comprising of Seondong Kim, Jongwoo Jun and Kwangyeon Cho has been selected as winner of a competition to design a ‘Stadium of Tomorrow’ in a contest sponsored by Populous in recognition of their recently completed design for 2014 Asian Games Stadium, the firm’s first in Korea.

The competition requested architecture and design students in Korea to conceptualise a stadium that responded to the world’s diverse environmental and climatic conditions and was transformable, moveable and demountable.

The winning solution, entitled Athletic Horizon, was selected for its ability to draw communities together by creating an unforgettable experience and judged on the grounds of functionality, uniqueness and sustainability. The team has been awarded $3,000 and a paid internship programme at Populous Asian Headquarters in Brisbane.

Andrew James, a Senior Principal at Populous, explains: “Populous is on a quest for quality and committed to investing in the education of young talented architects of the future. Our recent completion of the design for the Main Stadium for the Incheon 2014 Asian Games, coupled with our commitment to developing our presence in Korea, has created the opportunity to invest further in talented Korean designers, through the ‘Stadium of Tomorrow’ Design Competition.”
