Yangjaegogae Eco Bridge
Location: Seoul, Korea
Program: Eco Bridge
Client: Seoul Metropolitan Government
International competition / Research
Team: Ji-Hwan Park & Blake Pettus
The Seoul Metropolitan Government is planning projects such as the Seoul Trails and a connection of park green spaces through a basic plan of a wide-area quantitative and qualitative expansion of park green spaces. This will increase citizens' access to green areas and enhance the diversity of isolated insects, wild birds, and wildlife. The Yangjaegogae Eco Bridge site was disconnected from the green network due to the construction of the Gyeongbu Expressway. Mt. Umyeon Urban Nature Park and Maljukgeori Park have become separate areas and cannot be moved. The purpose of this design competition is not only to provide a roaming route for wild animals through the Eco Bridge, but also to furnish a living space for various creatures and create convenience for citizens with a connecting walking pass that blends in with the surrounding environment.
