ABOUT

The proposal aims to have a holistic development of the Hangang River Pedestrian Network through 3 main principles: inclusivity, layering programs through vertical elements, and considering day and night cycles to strengthen existing programs. After a detailed site analysis, the design team identified the lack of lighting, the lack of signage, and physical barriers for people with special needs as the three most critical conditions to address. The INTERFACE on pedestrian network and connection bases serve to provide easier access of people with different needs. It will bring the equal enjoyment of Hangang River to everyone.
