[Design] Ecological & leisure-cultural waterfront space in Seoul international district

The Weave

The Seoul International District’s Tancheon Waterfront will form a focal point for the district, generating activity, and setting a strong precedent for ecological and public revitalization in the city, by first being fully accessible, vibrant and attractive. The concept accomplishes this by revivifying the natural riparian ecosystem, reintroducing native vegetation, improving water and landscape ecology, and softening the physical slope barrier between the built environment, and the Tancheon Stream's banks. Effectively, this blurs the boundaries between riverfront and urban fabric, drawing the two conditions into one through a meandering pathway system, ignited with a variety of public program. Path and program are one, attracting all ages and social groups, and encouraging occupation at all times and seasons. This weaving action revitalizes this underused space, transforming it into the jewel of the Seoul International District, and drawing its two banks into formal connection.
