Therefore we started to make a plan to discover the value of public area in Marronnier park.First, we tried to sort and clean up the ruins of desire. Second, we tried to make a public area that shows character and quality of Campus street Culture zone. Third, we tried to make Marronnier park as a famous place in the city. To achieve these goals, we developed Marronnier park build up plan.

First, minimize of facilities. Clean up the improper facilities and just remain an outdoor theater, information center and toilet. Because of the clean up process, the park will be shown as a neat place and will give a simple message ‘this is a park’ clearly.

Second, minimize of landscape. only remain the trees that existed before and clean up all the bushes and shrubs so people can be a part of the park not just for trees.

Third, maxmize of area. Even if this area surrounded by museum, theater and the main building of culture and art committee, this area doesn’t look like a courtyard place because of the land register line. So we redesigned and extended the pavement up to the street. we expect many events will be opened in the park, and people will enjoy it on the street and in the park as well.

Fourth, Use of voronoi diagram. Voronoi diagram is made by Russian mathematician Voronoi. This diagram can explain nature phenomenon and structure of space. We use this diagram in digital space for create a mechanism that starts from the trees to the whole park area.

Finally, we made a polygon spaces by the center of the trees and these spaces become contains the programs such as big yard, step yard, information center, toilet and so on. This park will be a Public area with readjusted memorial stone and statues that is belong this park before.
