busan, south korea’s second largest city as well as the number-one harbor city, is famous for its summer attractions. approximately 46 million people visited its beaches such as haeundae, songjung, and gwangalli just in the year 2015. as the number keeps on rising, community facilities and infrastructure along the coastlines are developing rapidly. however, the development of inland busan is inadequate, leading space NEN to propose the architecture for an indoor swimming complex that regenerates a bunker called ‘mulman cistern’.

overall perspective view

the site where ‘mulman cistern’ will be located, busan yeonje-gu, is right next to the mulmangol area. mulmangol, a creek named to be full of fresh water even during the drought season, is always busy with visitors during the weekend. ‘mulman cistern’ is a place that can actively accommodate these visitors and work as a platform to provide balanced development of inland and coastline of busan through the element of water. especially the bunker, which started from the expansion of caves dated back to japanese colonial period, shows the lowest temperature of 11.21 °C and the yearly temperature difference of 1.7 °C. this condition will allow this facility to function not only in the summer, but also as an all-year around swimming attraction. this advantage will eventually act as a critical attracting point for overall busan, and as a supplement to the problem of coastline only concentrated during the summer season.

the ultimate water entertainment center, ‘mulman cistern’ by space NEN will accommodate visitors nationwide as well as revitalize the local community through active programs within the platform. mulman cistern will become the most favorable spot in the city of busan.
