The design team has been commissioned to design the external canopies and interior spaces for two stations. The brief was to design subway stations where they can feel an earthen environment under the ground as a reminiscence of Baekje Dynasty and its famous earthen ramparts around the area. Since the architectural features and historical relics of the dynasty had been mostly created from local earth around them, the design element has been developed based on earthen textures and colors with a modern touch of straight lines and patterns that give a space a calm rhythm.
