grimshaw architects have won the international competition hosted by the korea racing authority, with their proposal to conceive the ‘letsrun park yeongcheon facility’ in south korea. working with NOW architects, their collaborative master plan explores a 148 hectare park that combines a comprehensive new racecourse with a family park featuring a diverse range of equine-themed sports, activities and outdoor attractions.

the vast scheme will blend naturally and flow between landscape and the built environment with activities between the various parts of the project. the structure shows a curved, sinuous body of water to link the race-goer facilities to the infield horse park. meanwhile, a hotel and state-of-the-art grandstand will be integrated into the curved form of the racetrack. the completion of the project will naturally become a vital catalyst for tourism in the region, while promoting horse racing as a family activity.
