    Sari-Myeon, Goesan-Gun is an ordinary village with the typical opportunities and problems of any Korean farming village. The village has declined from its position as a provincial center in recent years because of modernization.

    The village has investigated the potential of a more advanced rural community as a way to combat the rapid decrease it has seen in its population. It is one of the future oriented villages which explore new possibilities of development through any means possible.

    The village tries to communicate and to reproduce among the generations through reproducing the architectural assets which will contain the essence of the village’s past, present, and future.

    In this context, the possibility of using the old warehouse of Nonghyup and the old children centers is well worth re-investigation.

    The village has need for a space for discussion and the exchange of knowledge and ideas. There has, for a long time, been the need for programs that link the many generations within a “Senior Center-Junior Center.”

    Furthermore, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and the Korea Rural Community Corporation are willing to ask for various ways to develop the village in a style that reflects the region’s characteristics, and utilizes the unattended architectural assets of rural areas. We expect that it will be another alternative which can assist in developing rural sustainably.
