Guri New Town Master Plan

Guri, South Korea 2010


Guri New Town is conceived of as a fully integrated horizontal and vertical city. Individual blocks and buildings are treated in a hierarchical fashion culminating with Guri Tower, a 108 story mixed use building at the center.

Guri New Town is a walking city. Individual neighborhoods are served by local commercial centers schools and community centers catering to needs of its citizens. Each neighborhood is linked to the central commercial center by boulevards.

Following the boulevard, an underground retail concourse links each district. This system is integrated with a people mover system that links the subway and regional transit systems.
