Also, in line with economic affluence, the desire to lead a leisurely lifestyle increases the interest in youth culture and life as well as its corresponding facilities. The design of youth cultural center in Songpa-gu, Seoul, provides a platform to promote communications and group activities and facilitate the development of emotional intelligence among young people.

Secondly, the design of a cultural complex, which is flexible enough to cope with the changes in social trend as well as cooperate with ambient environments. Thirdly, a space program and its design elements are provided to make use of the common use space, reflecting the psychological behaviour of youth, a town alley is emulated in a youth cultural center to make the facilities always open to locals and young people to communicate, play, and learn in a lively and safe atmosphere.
