Holding the Eco-Line, Suncheon City, South Korea
2011-2013 (with Jencks2)
Mountains and water at the heart of the Suncheon Eco-city, Korea, 2013. Mountains in this southern city have created a unique wetlands, celebrated in the Eco-Geo Festival of 2013. But, in a country that is 70% mountainous, this ecological duality has often remained below consciousness, so we have made it into two themes - Miniaturizing the Mountains and Holding the Eco-Line. That is, the sharp contrast between city and nature and the way mountains create their counterpart: riversand wetland deltas.
