The competition sought out proposals to revitalize the original downtown area, Busan Station is the starting point for a larger Busan North Port redevelopment project.
The second place proposal aims to reprogram the existing plaza of Busan Station Square with adaptive reuse, in order to create a new public space, including many activities centered on film.
By converting the existing structure into a film-based space, the proposal seeks to cultivate a place for culture and fun, which additionally creates jobs, all without compromising the existing plaza.
