Guri City Gaining Momentum
The International Advisory Board for the Nature, Culture and Design (NCD) 2015 project recently convened during the 2011 Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference (HD Expo) in Las Vegas to discuss the progress of one of the world’s largest mixed-use development projects being planned on the outskirts of Seoul in Guri City. Set for completion in 2015, the multi-billion dollar development project will include the Guri World Design Center, an exposition center, hotels, retail, condominiums, single-family homes, foreigners’ commercial zone, design graduate school, cultural centers, and much more. The primary purpose of the NIAB is to provide the Korean government with insight and guidance on the development of the Guri World Design Center and architecture and development from a global perspective. In addition to the board, which is made up of a number of hospitality design professionals, in attendance and presenting on the project were Guri City mayor, Young Sun Park, Chang Kuk Ko, president of K&C Associates, who has been instrumental in the development of the project, and a number of high-level Korean officials. “We intend to transform Guri City into Asia’s leading destination for design and architecture and meetings and conventions. Sustainable design will be an overriding initiative as we build for the future,” says Park.
