In the mountains next to Anyang, a city in South-Korea, a theme park is developed that stresses the beauty of the site through a series of artistic interventions. Anyang Resort Park was a booming location in the 1970s and ’80s, but became redundant during the past decade because it couldn’t follow up the changes in society. One way to revitalize this area is to mobilize its the natural wonders, intensifying nature. The path leading up the hill, an essential element of the park, is used as a tool to generate this idea. The spiral path transforms into the tower, extending the hill seamlessly, reshaping the peak. Two contour lines from the top are used to give form to the path in the new peak, forming an outer and inner spiral. The peak’s void creates a pavilion; it could hold a small exhibition or installation. The space can also be used for performances, allowing visitors to look down on the stage from the top of the hill. The path encircling the peak turns it into a destination.
