“Poetic Pragmatism”

The vast beauty with an emphasis on monochrome and flatness is distinctively characteristic to the Han River embankment, forming a major attraction to locals and international tourists visiting Seoul. It is one of the main images related to the city and of enormous relevance to its identity. The new cultural and transportation development on the south side of Han River between Mapo and Wonhyo Bridge aims to maintain this unique character of the site and to implement social, cultural and infrastructural improvements within the aesthetic and environmental context, setting an example for Seoul’s sustainable and holistic future development.
