Among 75 entries from all around the world for this open call, SOUR in collaboration with Seoinn Design Group are selected among the final 5 to present for the second stage of evaluations in front of the international jury.
The decision of the jury was announced by the Metropolitan City of Incheon, together with its Housing and City Development Corporation, during the ceremony at the Center for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning in Incheon, South Korea.
The design team lead by SOUR has been awarded the 4th Prize.
The ambition of the proposal was to urge architects to a necessary paradigm shift in the making of landmark architecture, where the design criteria and form-making should be driven by the energy endurance and climate resiliency.
The design by SOUR studio envisages a cultural, eco-friendly community landmark housing a futuristic Library and indoor-outdoor Museum, working together to become Geomdan’s new Archeology Park: a place for nature & people to thrive and explore, and where form follows sustainability measures and environmentally responsible design.
