  • A cooperation between renowned institutes and universities
  • Discusses the urban regeneration of a metropolis
  • Includes pioneering models that will inspire urban planners and architects

A major paradigm shift is taking place in Korea. The previous system of area rehabilitation, which involved the demolition of entire urban districts, is no longer considered appropriate. New concepts for careful urban regeneration are being developed.

The book documents the results of 'Seoul Living Lab', a project held in the Sangdo-Sa-Dong district in Seoul. It was set up as a cooperation between KIT (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie), Seoul National University (SNU), bw-i Baden-Württemberg International and ISA Internationales Stadtbauatelier, as part of the research project URBAN VOIDS.

The editors directed the project. They are Philipp Dechow (partner in the office ISA), Kerstin Gothe (Professor at KIT), and Seogjeong Lee (Professor at SNU).
