Asan Ecological Park
Architect / Client - Hak Sik Son Architects
Country - Asan , Korea
Asan Ecological Park is a botanical and ecological destination park in Asan, Korea South of Icheon.
Set on a dramatic hillside, the client was seeking to create a botanical respite for weekenders, similar to the Odeo Island gardens built over 50 years earlier.
The project included a series of themed garden types, including a Japanese rock garden, a Camelia garden, a Wind garden and a Sound garden.
Designed for young and old alike, the gardens were linked by a grove of trees and included picnic areas, a chapel, and terminated in a dramatic kinetic sculpture by a contemporary japanes sculptor.
