Olson Kundig worked closely with the design team from Shinsegae and artist Do-Ho Suh to create a “secret garden” for children and families in Uijeongbu, a city near Seoul, South Korea. Located on the roof of a 9-story department store, this 20,000 square-foot active play area and lush garden is an oasis of trees, plants and flowers comprised exclusively of native species from South Korea.

The master planning includes a series of secret discoveries for visitors to make: an art installation by Do-Ho Suh, a mysterious mist garden, a maze garden, a wading pool and several tree houses that visitors can climb and play inside. The garden offers both contemplative spaces and active spaces for children to explore, climb, splash and play while surrounded by fanciful bird and animal sculptures built from reclaimed lumber and found materials.
