Public institutions and government entities in Korea are ever more interested in the fields of city branding and urban design. Considered mainstream in the United States, city branding, public space, sign and façade design, as well as streetscape and wayfinding systems are quickly becoming topics of interest for leaders in local and central government agencies in Korea.

These urban design methods are viewed as proven techniques used to improve or transform cities and provide sufficient revenue generating sources as seen in Bryant Park in New York City.

The delegation from Jung-gu considers Newwork to be on the forefront of new and innovative approaches to Urban Design and enlisted Newwork's help in this think tank session to explore, understand and present various options to implement these techniques in Jung-gu.
