Project

Roster and Diamond Territory, South-Korea

We entered and won this competition that was sponsored by the government of the province of Jeollabuk-Do, South Korea. The proposal focuses on organizing the structure of a large landfill area of 400 sq.km.  The new, artificially built territory interprets a mixture of Dutch polder landscapes, with French Provence landscape and an early-capitalist settlement system of small towns resembling those of medieval Europe. The project also incorporates an industrial development area, agricultural development area, and recreational landscapes. These programmatic requirements define an overarching territorial, landscape, and settlement structure.
