After decades of economic upheaval, Seoul is now emerging as a cultural capital;
The development of new public spaces is the tool used by the Metropolitan Government to increase the quality of the urban life;
Nevertheless, these are generally securely controlled and restricted to segregated social classes;
The area next to Seoul Central Station is one of the few important open space which sees the hybrid use of the space from the homeless and the tourists/commuters;
This project deals with this opportunity to interact different groups of social classes;
Thus, two readaptable pavilions had been conceived, in order to accommodate a variety of new and existing functions;
The result is a social - artistic - community shaping tool;
