This study explores the characteristics of modern city and public design viewed from the perspective of multiplex culture. This study applied positivist research methods such as relevant literature survey and various theoretical reviews for the study of modern city and culture. The purpose of this study is to discuss the culture and multiplex culture, and explore the relationship between modern city and public design accordingly. As a result, this study analyzed the case of Starfield COEX as a typical complex cultural space in Korea and reinterpreted it as a concept of public design. However, this study has limitations that cannot provide empirical cases to support the theoretical discussion in the concept definition of the complex culture of Korea. So, It will investigate and supplement actual cases through a follow - up study of the study on the multiplex cultural space of modern cities.
