Abstract: Urban problems in rural small towns in Korea are manifested in various forms, such as the aging of the population, the smart gap, the departure of young people, and the inefficiency of urban space. Accordingly, the state and local governments are presenting various solutions to solve the above urban problems. Among them, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport conducted a public competition project to develop and demonstrate technologies such as smart common cultural space creation, smart education support, smart crime prevention and safety, smart healthcare, and smart information plaza as a way to create a smart city. Based on the project selected in the 2021 public contest, this study collects the opinions of actual residents through the operation of a living lab before the actual smart solution space construction, and based on this, secures the direction for space composition and curriculum development, and applies local customized applications We tried to derive a method for To this end, a living lab was operated prior to the establishment of a smart solution space, and various opinions were shared and collected through the participation of experts in each field, local residents, and universities. Based on the convergence results, the present day problems and local issues of small towns were discovered and served as a test bed to solve them. In addition, in order to further secure the justification and feasibility of building a smart space, the opinions of local residents were actively collected through a total of three surveys. As a result of living lab and governance results and survey analysis results, the necessary services and solutions were built in the order of smart crime prevention, smart healthcare, convenience for living, education support, smart information plaza, smart shelter, and multi-purpose studio. Through this, it was possible to build a space that maximizes the sensibility of actual residents.This study presented a methodology for how to build a resident-led bottom-up development model rather than the central government-led top-down development, and carried out actual demonstration. It is judged that this study can be provided as basic data to some extent in the design of a smart city customized for each region in the future to spread a similar public offering project. Smart cities and proptech following the 4th Industrial Revolution are an irresistible trend, and accordingly, they will become more sophisticated and concrete. Therefore, it is hoped that various results for actual verification through demonstration projects can be drawn, rather than looking at smart cities, living labs, and smart solutions only from an academic point of view, and various policy implications can be derived.
