풀다(the Key)

The site of the future Yisabu Dokdo Memorial Park occupies a unique historical, cultural and physical position in Samcheock City. Our initial understanding of the site and circumstances can be summarized as:

To the East: the Obon Port, with close access to the waterfront. It could be thought of as an extension of nature from Mount Yukhyang to Ulleungdo and Dokdo, forming a conceptual “Line of Nature”

To the North: the Naritgol Village neighborhood made up of long-time local residents. This is a “Line of Culture”

To the West: the National highway No.7 which connects to Seoul, Uljin City and Dong Hae City, making the site readily accessible to other major cities. It is a “Line of Infrastructure”

To the South: Rose Park for recreational purposes, making the “Line of Leisure” a possibility in the future. The existing road on the south side also points towards Ulleungdo and Dokdo, thus implying a “Line of History”

Our design attempts to address these various aspects of the site and to integrate them into a physical built form by:

Line of History- It houses the Dokdo Experience Space, with framed view towards the sea and Dokdo at a distance.

Line of Culture- It houses the Yisabu Memorial Hall, a continuation of culture and significance with close proximity to the local residence and villages.

Line of Nature- It is envisioned with an extension of landscape from Mt. Yukhyang towards the sea with outdoor theatres and other landscaping elements.

Line of Leisure- An extension of Rose Park which provides the north-south connection.
Line of Infrastructure- Introducing an outdoor Yisabu Memorial Plaza to welcome visitors arriving from National highway No.7 .

Last but not least, a covered ramp that links up the Yisabu Exhibits and the Dokdo Experience Space, thus forming a Line of Knowledge

A LOCK (쇳대) holds a special place in Korean history since the Joseon time. It had special protective powers, functioning as talismans of good fortune, wealth, health, fecundity and happiness. The footprints of our proposed design of “Yisabu Dokdo Memorial Park” shapes like a precious LOCK which frames Mt. Yukhyang and to provide multiple perspectival experiences for visitors to engage with nature, culture and the history of this place. Visitors are like KEYS unlocking these unique aspects of Korean history. Therefore, we humbly name our design “풀다(the Key)”
