Gosan-dong, as a modern neighborhood, is the consequence of a recent rapid urban development.
Similar to other “new town” developments in Korea and throughout Asia,
it too, has the inherent discontinuity of the sense of community
and loci between the past and the present.
Our proposal attempts to mitigate this by
creating a community library that respect the present context and usage of the site
as well as setting a concrete foundation for the future development of the neighborhood.
The current site was developed as a community park and children’s playground.
