Bridges are a crucial architectural structure, but oftentimes they only serve one purpose – linking one landmass to another. Not so with firm Planning Korea’s vision for a new multi-level, multi-use, greenery filled bridge for Seoul.
Called Paik Nam June Media Bridge, it is is a mega-structure over the han river that aims to efficiently expand the city fabric on to the water. with a total length of 1080 meters, the bridge connects the dangi-li power plant, which is currently being redeveloped into a public cultural space, and the national assembly building to the south. The design proposal is a largely sculpted form with fluctuating curves and volumes, serving as a park, meeting space, mall, museum and more. In addition to adding new green space to the city, the whole bridge would be covered with solar panels to generate its own energy.
