How does design serve as an engine for enhancing the value of cities? And how do the people in those cities benefit from this value? Join senior associate and Architect Kyosuk Lee as he speaks at the Seoul Design International Forum 2022, titled DESIGN x Seoul: How does design enrich our future? He will make use of MVRDV's projects as case studies and various examples of this theme.
Seoul Design aims to increase the competitive nature of Seoul as a city, ensuring its population a happy life in response to the rising challenges posed by global issues. By creating special design content in everyday life, Seoul designs the emotions of people and offers an impressive experience to make the city more attractive. Seoul pursues a design community where experts, businesses, and citizens work together for the better.
