City of the Sea, Sokcho, Korea

  • Comment

Lewis and Potin have recently been commissioned by the Cite des Sciences et de l'Industrie (Paris) for a major project in the town of Sokcho, Korea (see above, top and front cover). The City of the Sea is a scientific maritime adventure park, with aquaria, auditoria, an education centre, a scientific research centre and a 7ha landscape scheme. The main conceptual references for the design are maps of tectonic plates, seen as 'a museographic and architectural metaphor for a living planet' . Lewis and Potin's collaborators on the City of the Sea include Stephane Lagre and the Block group - Benoit Fillon, Pascal Riffaud and Denis Brillet.
