Many have been speaking about how Seoul’s edition of High Line will soon be open to the public. Formerly a 938m-overpass starting from Manli-dong, stretching past Namdaemun Market, the deteriorated elevated road near Seoul Station is being transformed into Bridge of Communication for pedestrians . As a new symbol of urban regeneration, the project was designed by young creative group Very Joon Oh. The overall designing was handled by world-renowned architect group MVRD, lead by Dutch architect Winy Maas. The new overpass will overflow with around 200 different types of greenery including all-year-round roses, apple trees and pine trees. Scattered throughout the bridge will also be book cafés, libraries, flower shops, puppet theatres, and convenience outlets. Seoullo is set to have its grand opening on May 20th, when all the flowers will be in full bloom. Visit http://seoullo7017.seoul.go.kr/ for more information on this soon-to-be-a-landmark of Seoul.
