Osong Biovalley Masterplan, Korea

In an attempt to decentralise its national government, South Korea is building Sejong City, a new administrative capital in the centre of the country. Osong Biovalley forms a satellite of this new town, and a hub for the biotechnology industry close to central government. PLP and Tomoon Architect’s entry into an international competition for the Osong Masterplan reimagines the structure of a Korean city to create new forms of collectivity for a research oriented community, breaking the mould of traditional science parks by preserving nature amidst a dense urban environment.

Jamsil, Seoul, Korea

Our proposal for the Jamsil Sports Complex masterplan in Seoul, operates simultaneously at mega-large and infinitesimally small scales to introduce a new urban ligament based on the city’s hillside alleyways. Connecting the site with Gangnam to the west, the Golmok Bridge establishes a primary experiential conduit through Jamsil as a counterpoint to the oversized, generic superblock perimeter streets. Around this conduit, three distinct neighbourhoods, galvanized around two retained stadia and a proposed convention centre, irrigate the bridge with activity.

Qatar Master Plan Doha, Qatar

The new Tianjin Binhai International Airport (IATA: TSN, ICAO: ZBTJ) is located east of Tianjin, in Dongli District in Northeastern China. The design of the project, won in an international competition, provides for the phased expansion of the development. Besides the new signature terminal building that serves as a gateway to this fourth largest city in China, the scheme includes the design of new runways, a new automated people mover system (APM) and main rail connection. The phased expansion will provide a state-of-the-art terminal building that triples the airport’s current capacity to a scale similar to that of Schiphol Airport, when completed.

Milan Fiera, Milan, Italy

The aim of the intervention is the creation of a new symbolic and recognizable urban centre for Milan. In order to stitch the site to the surrounding urban fabric, the scheme proposes a new urban block pattern generated by the superimposition of the existing grids from the neighbouring districts of the city.

Milan Varesine, Milan, Italy

The regeneration of the Varesine area, an important district in northern Milan, is a unique opportunity for the city. For the first time in Milan’s history, the area is the object of an intervention intended to reconnect it to the city’s urban fabric and reinforce its character as an area of access and interchange.
