Cities are becoming the focal point for addressing the challenges of urbanization and climate change. With the majority of the global population living in cities and this number expected to rise, cities are facing issues such as rising sea levels, urban heat islands, and resource management. As a result, cities are reinventing themselves by integrating unrelated uses to create more space and address these challenges.

Pilot conference 2023 in Seoul, South Korea

As a preliminary process, a conference was held in Korea in collaboration with the Korean Association of Culture Space Architecture and the Korean Association of Animal Funeral. 

The background for planning the pilot conference in Korea is that the most realistic models of future cities, such as the floating city project, are already underway in cooperation with Oceanix, UN Habitat, and Busan City. There are also various cases where Korean technology has been prominently used, such as in the prototype of the Lowline Park in New York.
