Edge City

Located on the boundary where the city of Busan meets Hallyeo Marin National Park, Gadeokdo presents a typical urban problem of a city on the edge; heavy exploitation of its resources by infrastructures serving other areas. Four mega scale urban projects – Busan New Port, Geoga Highway, Free Economic Zones and a new airport – are transforming this once pristine island to nothing but infrastructural wasteland. To retain and advance its natural resources as well as to efficiently support new urban demands from adjacent development, four interconnected sub-cities are planned to engage with four different functions separately.

Ecological Edge
Sub-cities facilitate the principles of unique environmental systems on island. They fully accommodate the existing topography to minimize grading impact. Land reclamation strategy in bay area is carefully formulated to conserve coastal landscape and appropriate for natural cleaning process.

Complementary Edge
Sub-cities accommodate shopping, relaxing, living and working respectively; ‘shopping’ takes advantage of proximity to Busan New Port, ‘relaxing’ benefits from the new regional artery of Geoga Highway, ‘living’ relieves housing pressure from Free Economic Zone, and ‘working’ supports business people in transit from the new airport. These four functions become the basic components for a larger city when interconnected with maritime transportation.

Autonomous Edge
The developmental trajectory of sub-cities is on cyclical phasing. Income as well as waste of one becomes the resource for another. It will develop into a complex chain of organic relationship to insure flexibility and resiliency of planning.
