Hodgetts + Fung recently completed the design for the Seoul Art Complex design competition. The site, envisioned as an open space with numerous paths, overlooks and places to relax, provides a place for people to come together to appreciate artistic efforts and participate in a culture of artistic endeavors. The location is characterized by steeply rising hillocks from a winding riverbed. It also includes a generous public plaza, reminiscent in some ways of Barcelona’s Park Güell, from which visitors will be offered a commanding view of the surrounding area.
