Proposal for Seosomun Park in the heart of Seoul
Our concept is to materialize the boundary into an active monument that reconnects the forgotten history of the park into a memorial for the catholic martyrs who lost the life fighting for their beliefs.
The site’s history has evolved with a constant struggle between belonging and being excluded from the city. This paradoxical INCLUSIVE/EXCLUSIVE situation is the starting point of our conceptual approach to the project.
The park is today isolated from its immediate urban fabric on all four sides of its perimeter: rail tracks, elevated highway, massive complex and finally a main street.
