Nationality: Republic of Korea

‘Markestation’ is a visionary project designed to promote a circular economy within our city. Central to this vision is the idea of sustainable resource distribution. A significant challenge in recycling and upcycling initiatives is the inconvenience of returning products to their point of origin. ‘Markestation’ offers an innovative solution by leveraging our existing metro infrastructure.
Our city’s metro system, well-equipped to transport people to various destinations, becomes the backbone of ‘Markestation.’ Each metro station transforms into a dynamic marketplace where products flow seamlessly between manufacturers and consumers. Diverse brands and goods arrive via different trains, creating a vibrant and convenient shopping experience.
Furthermore, ‘Markestation’ encourages responsible consumption by providing incentives for returning used products. This project aims to establish ‘Markestation’ as the epicenter of our city, fostering an integrated circular economy. It reimagines commerce by converting metro stations into hubs where sustainability, convenience, and responsible practices converge.
With ‘Markestation,’ we aspire to revolutionize resource management, making sustainable living an integral part of our urban landscape. ‘Markestation’ represents a vision for a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future, driven by a commitment to change and a dedication to responsible practices.
