The Seoul Metropolitan Government has announced its Sejong-daero Historic Cultural Space Design Competition, which seeks creative designs for the site of the former National Tax Service Building, as well as a greater conceptual blueprint for the central Seoul area.
The goal of the competition centers on the idea of “creating a space for integration of existing historic cultural heritages and contemporary urban space” via a restoration of the historic essence of the building site, but also with a focus on its future uses.
Designs should take into consideration 5,188 square meters of above-ground and underground space, as well as the cultural heritage and significance of the site and surrounding area, such as Deoksugung, Seoul City Hall, Seoul Plaza, and Sejong-daero.
Winners of the competition will be awarded $100,000,000 KRW (about $86,000 USD). All participants must register by September 24. Submissions are to be completed by September 25, by mail or in person. Learn more about the competition, here.
