Senior Principal, Samoo Architects & Engineers
"Landed City, Dongtan: Green City in sync with the land"

The purpose of this presentation is not to show the existing way of design for new town complexes on suburban areas, but to suggest a new planning methodology reflecting Korean culture and topography. The presentation will focus on the design and philosophies behind the design of the Dongtan-2 Newtown area, where 60% is composed of gently sloped hill and valleys running down from the mountains. The major concept of this master planning work starts with this topographic condition.
