The Seoul Commune 2026 is a theoretical take on what cities can, will, and should be like in the future. More
The goal of the Seoul Commune is to "investigate the viability of an alternative and sustainable community structure in the overpopulated metropolises of the near future." The architects saw a need for this type of program in Korea specifically due to the rapidly changing population, the "increasingly 'graying' and hyper-individualized society." The strategy to date has been to build large towers in a swath of greenspace (the "towers in the park" typology.) The Seoul Commune combines the two, integrating them into a seamless whole, creating "interjunctions between interior/exterior and public/private space on a variety of scales [to accomodate] various residential activities and [to facilitate] spontaneous social interactions."
