GREEN BRAIN:
A SMART PARK FOR A NEW CITY
Central Open Space in MAC, Korea

Directives for the new Urban Ecology:
The public park will be the central
place of the city, the heart of the
circle.  It will bridge the artificial
divide between nature and culture.  
The park will be a harmonized
environment. It will balance its own
energy, waste, air quality, water, and
economy. A self-sufficient village of
500 will serve as prototype and
laboratory.  Sculptural follies will
control climate locally by radiant
heat in the winter and a cooling mist
during summer time.  Constructed
wetlands will remediate waste from
the park. Existing farms will continue
in use.  Everything is calibrated to
walk-time: pedestrians will be
privileged.  The park will be highly
diverse, both great and responsive: a
place of pleasure, health and
learning.
