Abstract

South Korea is one of the world’s most urbanized countries. While South Korea and Seoul are widely known for the past rapid economic growth and massive urban development it is often overlooked that over the last decade novel approaches to urban development, which noticeably differ from the earlier period, have taken place in South Korea. Although there seems to be a growing interest in the historic origins of urban change in South Korea and resulting economic, social, cultural and political consequences, little research has been done so far in the field of Korean studies on the changing nature of the recent South Korean urban development. The paper tries to fill the gap in the research on the urban change in South Korea by focusing on the recent urban design, discussed as an important instrument of urban policy and a subject of growing civic involvement, in the Seoul metropolitan region.
