orial park. The concept masterplan for the memorial also aims to transform the village that is in decay. With three main goals established - physical regeneration, cultural regeneration and livelihood regeneration - the project will inject a bottom-up approach initiating a village revitalization with active community involvement, introducing limited commercial, culture and arts uses built on storytelling of the local history linking the village with the new memorial. The majority of the buildings in the village will be preserved through repair and improvement work. As well, limited number of new buildings wil be constructed with injected art, culture and community functions. With the newly introduced path that links the village with its surroundings, A+U lab’s design of Yisabu Dokdo Memorial adopts a comprehensive and proactive approach to the memorial design that aims to shape quality urban environment for the local residents.
