C’arch Architecture + Design
Busan Metropolitan City has called for an international architectural design competition to remodel Busan Tower. The remodelling effort aims at accentuate it as a centre of history, culture and tourism while improving its citizen access, public functions and regeneration of its historic downtown.
Our vision for the new Busan Tower and Yongdusan Park is to re-instate the lost forested hilltop that it was once described as a 'very deep forest enough to find the record about appearance of three tigers in 1875' and form a new hill-top with panoramic viewing gallery and facilities. The vision redefines the existing square, expands public accesses and facilities while preserving its historic significance. As the tower ages with its locality, it establishes itself as an icon; an icon that deserves a high level of preservation.
