Young Architects’ competition 2016 : Creating Parking Facility Cultural Space
Цель конкурса – превратить парковочную зону в живописном пригороде Сеула в культурное пространство, сохранив при этом ее изначальную функцию. Проблема в том, что парковка негативно влияет на окружающую среду и нарушает облик местности. Участникам необходимо создать на ее месте общественное пространство, архитектурный объект, который не только впишется в контекст пригорода, но и станет популярным среди местных жителей местом.
