"The Rebirth of the River To understand Korea's complex history and culture, it is necessary to understand how human habitation has coexisted with the topography, and in particular the river networks that permeate the peninsula. In recent years, however, this interrelation has been neglected, disconnecting the nation from the influence of architectural and urban practice.
In response to the South Korean government's recent decision to 'reconstruct' the course of four important rivers, including the river Han (Seoul), the workshop focused on new experimental strategies for reconnecting the urban environment with the river network and waterfronts.
We investigated alternative architectures and critical ways to galvanise wider political, professional and public discussions about the future of the rivers."
