The Seoul Metropolitan Government has won several awards for its public art projects and its crime prevention designs.
The Society for Experiential Graphic Design presents awards recognizing public design projects that have a positive social impact.
It gave its top award for this year to Seongdong-gu district’s Skyline Wayfinding project.
That one is a crime prevention project, and it won the Sylvia Harris Award and Merit Award for putting addresses on the side of each building to help find people in an emergency.
A three-way pedestrian overpass in Jongro-gu District was also recognized with a Merit Award for its design incorporating the arts and augmented reality technology.
Seoul’s projects are the first Korean design projects to receive SEGD design awards.
