Green Walkable City & Sharing Green Space

The urban development methods complete with large scale blocks and separate complexes have divided the space of citizens into closed groups so that an isolated urban space where access and communication are blocked without community life. Zoning districts that are cut off from each other by roads due to the land use plan define the method of life in a uniform way to the extent that all of the places look the same. The housing supply method that divides house rental and purchase has been causing an issue that hinders the fusion of citizens, and the method of distributing subsidiary facilities by complexes is the reason for lacking diversity and the redundant supply of regional shared facilities. Moreover, it was true that nature was also organized as islands inside the designated blocks under the terms of parks and greens.

Now, the question of this competition is as follows.

This competition begins with questions including “What is the street space-centered shared city and how should it be established?” “How does that city make harmony with the natural ecological environment, how is it organized within the harmony and what is the significance of it?” We expect that the participants would provide diverse urban and architectural ideas based on human sciences and philosophical ideas to answer our questions.
