The Korea National Arboretum Children's School Forest was designed as an educational space to inform children on the importance of the natural environment. Designed by GEEUMPLUS architects, the space serves as an exhibition site to experience the outdoors. The design was inspired by the relationship between architecture and nature, and how they find a means to coexist.
The design was built around the existing forestry, as to not intervene with the natural environment. The design also focuses on the significance of the bee, and how their existence is vulnerable due to climate change. Thus to emphasize the importance of the bee in the smooth running of the ecosystem, the structural design is informed by the shape of the honeycomb.
The project is set to be completed in 2021.
