Busan North Port Redevelopment

This summer, KCAP participated in the International Competition of Busan North Port Redevelopment Phase 2. Busan already proceeded with the 1st phase of redevelopment in the old North Port. This time, for Phase 2, we focused on connecting the harbour with the city, adaptive re-use of the industrial legacy and making a fine urban grain. With our local partners, DA Group, Dong-A University and Grunge Factory, we added alternative development modes as landownership concepts, citizens’ participation and flooding protection strategies like we do in Rotterdam and Hamburg. We finished second.
