Seoul National University DAAE
Design Studio 4.1
Seoul is constantly changing. The present change is a constant expansion of the city outwards towards the periphery. Is this condition inevitable or are there other models? In this studio we will seek to find a new model which considers two points:
Retain and work with an existing building, Sewon Sanga, an icon of the 1970s which will soon be demolished and replaced with a generic, glazed modern architecture that is inundating the world from Dubai to Phoenix via Hanoi.
STOP THE SPRAWL
To present another viable option to the sprawling city, we will seek to introduce a new public programme into the existing building as to make the building centre for people all around Seoul, from children to pensioners.
