The new Taekwondo Park World Headquarters in Muju, Korea will become a world cultural heritage site meant to emphasize the spirit and beauty of the sport. The master plan, which covers 570 acres, will be created by Weiss/Manfredi while the complex will be designed by Samoo Architecture PC. More about the project after the break. After the master plan was approved, a design-build competition was created for the park, due to the size and scope of the project.
