Jeonju, one of the largest cities in the southwest of the Korean peninsula, has long been enriched by the Korean traditions and cultural practices alive in its old historic buildings such as that of the Hanok Village, the Pungnam Gate, the Jeondong Catholic Cathedral, among others. At present, the city of Jeonju intends to become the most Korean-style city representative of contemporary culture, while also preserving the traditional cultural heritage of South Korea and the rich natural environment surrounding the city in a sustainable manner. Accordingly, the overarching theme of this competition is the revitalization of the Jeonju Station area into a prosperous civic cultural space of the kind that will come to characterize the traditional city of the future. Participants are asked to extend and improve Jeonju Station and its neighbouring facilities, so that the new Jeonju Station can become the first epicenter for the cultivation of local culture and rich environmental experiences.
