2019 Busan International Architectural Design Workshop
It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the upcoming 2019 Busan International Architectural Design Workshop (BIADW) at Busan, Korea. Busan Architecture Festival (BAF) offers an intensive international design workshop for the students from around the world. BIADW has been held annually during the summer since 2003. Students are invited to investigate a wide array of creative architectural and urban design approaches in the context of the 21st century urban culture. This year, BIADW will be held at Pusan National University in Busan from July 29 to August 3.
DESIGN THEME : Local regeneration by waterfront development of Yeongdo(island) in Busan
DESIGN SITE : Bongnae Naru site in Yeongdo(Island), Busan, KOREA
ASSIGNMENT : Responsive, appropriate and sustainable development Planning using existing atmosphere and resources including ware houses, plea market and living.
SYNOPSIS : Yeongdo, a small oshore district, is famous for its Taejongdae seaside cli and Mt. Bonglae which provide fantastic views of one of Korea's largest cities. The National Maritime Museum, which oers ocean-related exhibitions all-year-long, is underrated as a tourist destination. The Yeongdo Bridge is also a famous city monument.
The recent buzz in Busan is that the bascule bridge is being opened regularly for the rst time since 1966. It was constructed in 1934 during the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910-1945) as the rst drawbridge in Asia. The Japanese who planned to build a shipyard in Yeongdo needed a bridge to transport material from the mainland. But big ships needed to pass through as well, so the bridge had to be able to make this to happen. After the Korean War (1950-53), the bridge became a landmark for refugees looking for their families. Fortune-telling houses began lining up along the bridge, earning money by oering hopeful predictions for refugees looking for their loved ones. There are stories about people jumping off the bridge in despair after failing to reunite with their family members.
Site is located at the side of right hand faced Lotte Shopping Mall over the small strait. We expecting this area to be developed on the careful and responsible consideration of existing resources including ware houses, ea market, social relations and atmosphere.
