Development masterplan for the northern area of Seoul Station 

Samoo Architects' plans for the Northern area of Seoul Station had to develop around a characterful yet isolated topography to create a new public realm, fit for the 21st century. The project was to create a major transfer-point for public transportations including the Airport Railway Station, which will be completed next year, and to develop a synergy with parks located around the site.

The name Urban Trachea was given to the project to suggest a new breath of life for the city, one which will reveal the potentials hidden within the city. The architects focused on developing a greater masterplan for the future of Seoul-station which includes the Seoul-station Cultural Space (former Seoul-station) as the center with the private capital induced Seoul KTX station to the South and the Northern Development site to the North.

Through this, Seoul will be a place where the past, the present, and the future coexist as the center for railway transportations. It will become a new center for International conventions with endless potentials.
