Transforming the Urban Landscape – Cheonggyecheon Stream Restoration

I’m always a fan of projects that transform decaying manmade structures and features into revitalized green spaces, and I saw this great example from Seoul, Korea. This project is even cooler because a river that runs directly through Seoul had been buried years before underneath the highway, and when the road was demolished for the park, the river was recovered and is now a centerpiece of the urban park.

As more and more of us are living in urban environments, I hope that we’ll see more innovative projects like
the Seoul Cheonggyecheon Stream park.
