Text description provided by the architects. Blurring Boundary, is planned for the University of Seoul campus to communicate and coexist with the city by blurring the boundary between them. I put a wall the guides the flow of people to pass through the entrance instead of a heavily woven firm gate. This is a part of the effort to restore continuity with the city.

The university’s emblem was expressed on the walls and its floor, and made a continual connection between the floor pattern and a cut on the wall with yellow onyx and Macheon(marble) stone. This effect naturally causes drivers to slow down as they enter even without an entrance control bar being in place.
