#Luiis_3x ] How the Cheonggyecheon River Urban Design Restored the Green Heart of Seoul: ... [ #Luispokel

The Cheonggyecheon flows east to west in the heart of Seoul, starting from the Cheonggyecheon Plaza, equipped with market stands for food and craft vendors. The stream shape also changes as it flows westward and becomes progressively more “natural” and marsh-like as it flows downstream. Open at all hours, the linear park is fully integrated into Seoul’s urban fabric and is host to hundreds of events and art installations every year. The park is brimming with people, even late at night, making the space an attractive safe haven. Considered a flagship project, the completion of the Cheonggyecheon has spurred the development of various other river restoration projects around Korea and inspired other daylighting projects around the world.
