ABSTRACT

This study aims to propose an urban renewal plan for the old downtown Jeonju with conservation and reuse of old Jeollabuk-do Hall. I discussed the factors that form the urban identity which is recognized as a critical factor in post-modern city. Architecture and landscape provide physical space which constitute urban identity and these meaningful space become the place that provides the background and the space for action and specific memory. The old town has more potential to reflect urban identity, because it has a lot of layer of time with historical legacy and industrial heritage. However, some places in urban area are fallen into derelict places with losing their vitality with the growth of the city. It is required to regenerate these derelict areas for us to give the new program and features for the city in post-modern era. The trend of the regeneration is developed from one precious spot restoration to area generation which is networking various specific meaningful locations. Because it can facilitate a variety of actions and events that are essential elements for people's gathering. Gamyeong 5th gil in Jeonju old town has been formed in the Joseon Dynasty. It was the longitudinal axis of the city connecting from Pungnam gate to Gaeksa. But it has been changed into an unattractive street with physical problem such as generation of derelict space, discontinuity of walking route, and mass with scale of buildings recently. It is possible to reproduce the place by inserting a public space with the new features and programs for solving these problems. The first step is to paving with pedestrian oriented environments. Next is to transferring current court yard parking space into urban public park for gathering and resting. The third is to reuse old Jeollabuk-do Hall into the library or the museum for the public destination or attraction.
