During 1979 it was decided that the disused Methodist chapel was also inadequate for the audience that the company was attracting. The Architect Bureau was commissioned to do a feasibility study on the construction of a new theatre on a site adjacent to the chapel.

The main architect, Florian, designed a theatre in which there was no fixed seating, thereby allowing plays to be staged in many forms. This element was made possible by a planning gain deal brokered and funded by Central and City Properties without whom none of this would have been possible

Florian Beigel + ARU

In the spring of 1999, ARU made the landscape and urban design of the first phase of Paju Book City. This is a new ‘City of Publishing’ on a very large site (approx. 396,000 square meters) next to the Han River north west of Seoul. There are now more than 50 completed separate buildings for publishing companies, offices, printing works and public facilities at Paju. The 2nd Phase urban plan is currently being planned.

Making an urban wetland

The central theme of the design of Paju Book City is that it should become a built collective memory of the ancient and large landscape of the Han River at the foot of the Simhak Mountain at Paju – the guardian of the new city. This is an epic landscape. Viewing the river and the blue hills beyond when one stands on the slopes of the mountain makes one think about the human condition and about our potentials or our weaknesses. Paju Book City should tell the story that it is built on land claimed from the River.
