South Korean design firm YiEUM Partners and the Seoul Metropolitan Government worked together to design and develop the 2019 SEGD Global Design Awards Sylvia Harris and Merit Award-winning project "Skyline Wayfinding," a much-needed wayfinding system that transformed navigation in the maze-like Geumho-dong neighborhood.

Skyline Wayfinding

Geumho-dong in Seoul is a neighborhood which was built with housing as a top priority—to its detriment. Over 90 percent of the homes built in this neighborhood have no parking spots, or even streets appropriate for vehicular traffic.

Jahadam Project

Merit Award 2019
Jahadam Project

The Jahadam Project was done on a three-way pedestrian overpass located at Shinyoung-Dong, Seoul, Korea. This Project was to develop this pedestrian overpass as a public art structure using a multidisciplinary approach reflecting local cultural and historical context, the bridge’s spatial characteristics and visitor analysis to make it a meaningful experience. The Jahadam project transformed the oldest overpass structure into a new cultural space, combining the resident’s imagination and ideas arising from the surrounding environment where nature and city life coexist.

SaRang Global Mission Center Clock Tower

Merit Award 2018
SaRang Global Mission Center Clock Tower

The SaRang Global Mission Center was established as a place for the large community of SaRang Church to gather for weekly services, while reinforcing the church’s vision (to send missionaries all over the world) and mission (to reach out to the surrounding local community). Along with the construction of the new building, there were plans to erect a more traditional bell and clock tower on the campus.
