DESIGN THEME : Local regeneration by waterfront development of Yeongdo(island) in Busan
DESIGN SITE : Bongnae Naru site in Yeongdo(Island), Busan, KOREA
Assignment : Responsive, appropriate and sustainable development Planning using existing atmosphere
and resources including ware houses, plea market and living.
Background : Yeongdo, a small o_shore district, is famous for its Taejongdae seaside cli_ and Mt. Bonglae which provide
fantastic views of one of Korea's largest cities. The National Maritime Museum, which o_ers ocean-related exhibitions
all-year-long, is underrated as a tourist destination. The Yeongdo Bridge is also a famous city monument. The recent buzz
in Busan is that the bascule bridge is being opened regularly for the _rst time since 1966. It was constructed in 1934
during the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910-1945) as the _rst drawbridge in Asia. The Japanese who planned to
build a shipyard in Yeongdo needed a bridge to transport material from the mainland. But big ships needed to pass
through as well, so the bridge had to be able to make this to happen. After the Korean War (1950-53), the bridge became
a landmark for refugees looking for their families. Fortune-telling houses began lining up along the bridge, earning
money by o_ering hopeful predictions for refugees looking for their loved ones. There are stories about people jumping
o_ the bridge in despair after failing to reunite with their family members. Site is located at the side of right hand faced
Lotte Shopping Mall over the small strait. We expecting this area to be developed on the careful and responsible
consideration of existing resources including ware houses, _ea market, social relations and atmosphere.
