Award Entry

Eco-park to attract visitors to undeveloped area 

The Magok Waterfront park master plan (area : 290 acres) is a winning scheme of an international design competition sponsored by Seoul city Government to transform an undeveloped area into a friendly waterfront park attracting residents and tourists as a sustainable model of development.

The planning objectives can be outlined in three major issues; the creation of a waterfront leisure area equipped with related facilities and amenities; the park should be designed with all relevant leisure facilities and amenities to make the best possible use of the Han River that runs through the Capital City of Korea and the lake park; and the main components of the project must include a waterfront park, harbour facilities, circulation systems and floodgate facilities.

The Park should promote a sustainable ecosystem and spread the natural environment of Magok. The waterfront must be designed with the consideration of its ecological surroundings in order to successfully promote exemplary sustainable development - therefore the waterfront is designed with environmental maintenance and safety management in mind. It must conform to the higher level development strategy of the city government to make the river accessible to citizens and act as a spearhead in the actualization of this major City-wide project and should therefore be designed to be compatible with, and incorporate its vision.
