Today (September 9),
we made the Seoul Building Declaration. I believe the declaration will be the
starting point of a wonderful spatial symphony created by the orchestra called Seoul
City. All participating building experts and local residents will play the role
of orchestra members.
declaration, buildings in Seoul will be important bowels containing local
residents’ lives. They will be assets shared by all residents in the city as
those with values such as publicness, locality, and historicity. With such
efforts, Seoul will be a small universe where people exchange warmhearted thoughts.
The paradigm of buildings in Seoul will change from development to
sustainability, from filling to emptying, and from closing to opening.
