The design competition, as the priority project of the 4 Core Projects of the Han River Cooperation Project, aims to create a ferry terminal which manages water transportation and various vessels including private and government vessels in an integrated manner. The site, one of the tourist attractions in Seoul (South Korea), is able to display the natural and urban scenery of Seoul. Also, the current facilities on the site are convenient to use among those in the Han River zones and provide easy access to the citizens. In particular, it is expected to be an important site that domestic and foreign tourists visit. Therefore, this competition should contribute to the design of ferry terminal as a new spot on the Han River, where everyone can come and enjoy. This competition is also expected to maximize the scenery of the Han River as well as keep the original functions and roles of the ferry terminal.
- Applicants should design an upper building, lower pontoon, and marina facilities that respect the function of Yeoui-Naru Ferry Terminal), the types and specifications of the vessels to be accommodated, etc. that is environment-friendly and suitable for civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical system designs.
- The design should leave room for expansion, taking future increases in ship and user demands into consideration.
- For comfortable and safety use of all the citizens including the disabled, barrier free plan should be reflected on the design plan.
- All facilities should be planned with respect to the design flood discharge of 200 years (37,000㎥/sec) and the flood water level (14.86m EL.m).
- In accordance with the construction of the 4 core project facilities, the design scope should be within a ange that does not involve modifications of the basic river plan (except minor changes). The river width should not be reduced by more than 1% of the planned 1,286m.
- All facilities should secure a safe area for the Subway Line 5 tunnel.
The layout of Yeoui-Naru (Ferry Terminal) and marina facilities should be planned with respect to future expansion possibilities, and the marina facilities, such as floating piers, should be planned with consideration for the stability of a berthing ship.
Layout plans should include the following:
- Buildings and marina facilities shall be arranged to fit the docking area, on the existing concrete shore area, and on the surface of the Han River adjacent to the waterfront.
- The marina facility layout should be planned with an appropriate distance from the bottom of the reservoir to minimize dredging and the drafts of the ships.
- Ships with a capacity of 100 tons or more shall be spaced more than 30 meters from the bottom of the reservoir.
- Separate marina facilities should be secured for ships with a capacity of 200 tons or more for stable berthing and mooring.
- Marina facilities for large ships (such as floating piers) should be placed so they do not disturb the harbor tranquility (less than 0.31 m) of small ships of less than 10 tons (management boats, water taxis, civilian vessels, etc.).
The estimated construction cost for this design contest is 27.5 billion won (about 23,343,600 USD) (including construction, civil engineering, and VAT).
