Some of the topics include: the impact of the 7017 elevated park, the emerging role of social engagement in the generation of public space, redevelopment strategies for the open track areas north and south of the station, and the challenge of low-rise/high-density design over large-scale development. Please join us for lively discussion and debate on this central and important part of Seoul’s imminent future.
