NOW Architects and Grimshaw have been selected to design "LetsRun Park" - a new home for horseracing in the South Korean city of Yeongcheon. Selected through an international competition by the Korea Racing Authority and International Union of Architects, the team's masterplan calls for new racecourse and equine-themed family park on the 148 hectare site.

"The design for the park creates a natural and intuitive flow of landscape and activities between the various parts of the project. In particular it uses a curved, sinuous body of water to link the race-goer facilities to the infield horse park. A hotel and state-of-the-art grandstand, integrated into the curved form of the racetrack, comprise key elements of the architecture," says the team.

"Let's Run Yeongcheon will be a catalyst for tourism in the region and is intended to boost the popularity of horseracing as an enjoyable day out for the whole family," they added.
