This thesis aims to plan and design an urban monument in Seoul, Republic of Korea, that can reflect the political movement of the city at the urban area which has been historically associated with political representations of the government and civic organizations. The advent of digital technologies allows a massive amount of social and political ideas of citizens to be collected efficiently through online networks, and enables this gathered data to be linked to physical environments through digital interactive interfaces. In this system, when users input data, interfaces respond to it by generating physical components interactively; therefore, individuals can create urban environments with own intentions. However, at the same time, the technological movement also raises a demand for a comprehensive master plan which can properly control digital systems in physical space. The goal of planning and design in this project is to create an urban master plan that can integrate the political symbolism of the site and the new technological system.
