Hangang Project Headquarters
Design Competition of the Natural Swimming Pool at Jamsil Hangang Park

The Jamsil Hangang Park swimming pool, installed in August 1990, is a safety-grade C-class facility after a close inspection in 2019. It is a facility that is aged 30 years after installation and needs to be fully renovated.

Participants create a natural water swimming pool space that does not only improve facilities and safety, but also restores natural landscapes and fulfills urban regeneration.
From spring to autumn, the site intends to create a swimming pool and a rest area, and in winter, create a winter landscape that blends with the Hangang(also Han River) for providing a public space that can be used throughout the four seasons.
Role as a new landmark in Seoul and facility planning that can be used in all seasons will enhance the status of Jamsil Hangang Park and present a new paradigm for natural water facilities that are differentiated from other swimming pools in Hangang Park.
