Description
This competition aims to invite participants into an open ideas architectural design contest of the gymnasium for local residents in Hyeonpung-myeon located in Dalseong-gun (District), Daegu Metropolitan City, which is expected to begin construction in 2015.
In light of the 100th anniversary of its office in 2014, the continuously growing district of Dalseong-gun is trying hard to make a new leap forward. In this context, and in response to the rapid increase of the population influx, the district is encouraged to provide a diversity of cultural benefits to its local residents. It is in this line of action that the gymnasium for locals should be understood as an attempt to offer high quality sports related facilities to the residents. The objective is to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of Dalseong-gun’s citizens by procuring a space for health promotion and sports activities, offering the foundations by which to enjoy the benefits of sports, culture and welfare, and thus building a new gymnasium complex, replacing the small and outdated existing one. Moreover, it also intends to fill the local community of Dalseong-gun in its centenary with great pride regarding their splendid city, by building a gymnasium with outstanding design and functions.
