    I am actually studying architecture in Korea right now and almost all of my profs said Cheonggyecheon stream project is not successful (critical).
    They had to restore and renovate the ruin of historical building and bridges, Unfortunately lack of construction time (presidential election Lee Myung-bak)its all gone.

    Thanks for covering the Cheonggyecheon and the topic in general. Cheonggyecheon stream is one of my favorite sections of Seoul. It’s so nice to get some respite from the hustle of the city along this beautiful stream.

    Gasworks park in Seattle, WA is pretty nifty also.
