ll-shaped architecture was divided into three parts: the art center, the tourist information center, and the cafeteria, and the square was built in the center of the three hills. There is a pond that uses rain water in the open space, this pond changes to stage by pulling out water, and the hill-shaped building becomes the audience seating. The plaza is used for various purposes such as various events and concerts, and the building and the environment are united to produce a crowd.
As a gateway to the Old Town, it was a park where people could easily drop in and relax as a new venue connecting the Old Town and the New Town.
Stop the evolution of the town where disorganized development occurred.
I hope that the direction of the development of the new town will change from this building.
