World Class Visitor’s Center at Suncheo Wetland

The Suncheo wetland of Korea features the 5th largest tidal flat of the world where Gansam Architects G.lab has taken an innovative initiative to build a world class visitors center, aiming to protect and enhance the wetland. This minimally invasive project has been designed to go with the ebb and flow of the river tides. The 3,500 hectare wetland contains shallow salt marshes and over 25 types of threatened species and is important for its ecological attributes, production of fish, mollusks and seaweed. Keeping these important eco factors intact, the project was designed to join and showcase the wetland and surrounding mountains.

A significant part of the building is covered with green roof and the layout of the project is inspired from the outflows and inflows of the wetland’s tides. The project has different areas to maximize the environmental aspects and reducing energy consumption. All the portions of the design have maximum exposure on daylight and the entire structure is elevated from the ground level to ensure minimal disruption of the site.
