The day has finally come, Seoul’s edition of High Line will open to the public this weekend. Formerly a 938m-overpass starting from Manli-dong, stretching past Namdaemun Market, the deteriorated elevated road near Seoul Station has been 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.
