Design for Cultural Sustainability: Strategic Concept Development Through Space- & Service Design for Incheon International Airport, South Korea

Design for Cultural Sustainability: Strategic Concept Development Through Space- & Service Design for Incheon International Airport, South Korea

In the Autumn semester 2016, IDAS collaborated with the Incheon International Airport (ICN) – the best airport in the world for 11 consecutive years since 2005 according to the Airports Council International (ACI) ranking.

The project task was to propose strategic design concepts for an area of about 2000sqm within the airport terminal 1 concourse building in line with human-centred design principles and cultural sustainability.

During the 12 weeks collaboration, students explored ways to create a sense of place and identity through shared spaces, public and interactive art, educational elements, and exhibition design. The overall aim was to extend the concourse building’s value proposition, and enhance its design identity. The final outcomes were presented to a committee of airport representatives including the airport’s vice president, the head of F&B and planning, as well as the head of design.

The sketches and renderings below represent a selection of the final project output. If you have any questions about further details please contact our lab directly.
