I also agree, brian.
In my opinion, the Han River project is more admirable than the several landmark towers planned for the city. Also, the funny thing is that I like the surrounding green area of the DMC tower more than the tower itself.

I don't mean to be cynical against artist's originality and effort but there seems to be a couple of issues with this design. The cost per space efficiency seems to be the biggest issue with this one. Secondly, the building seems to be no more interesting than the Washington monument in DC. Personally I would really love to see the first proposed rendering made to reality.

I have to agree with you here too BOM. I also like the surrounding green areas around the towers lol. The Yongsan Dream Tower's surroundings (from the renderings) look pretty good too. I also like how Seoul has a mix of very "countryside-like" atmosphere (around far western and far eastern Seoul near Sangam (small islands with trees, birds, greenery) and W Hotel Seoul area (plenty of trees, mountains, flowers, parks) with combined with a vibrant modern megacity atmosphere of Gangnam and CBD.

Yeah, Yeah, I like it too, But strictly speaking, I feel koreans love such "countryside-like" atmosphere feeling too much,.. they even plant trees at every corner inside city core obsessionally,.. and don't clear sands on the road and sidewalks cleanly, I guess it's heritage of agricultural era sentiments.

BTW seoul is one of the least green city in the world, I mean that there are least amount of content of vegetation in the city. You hardly see any trees and no grass to play football on, mostly sand.

According to the 2006 environment white book released by the Seoul Metropolis government, as of 2005, total green area (or 'park area' as written in the text) of Seoul is 164.22 sq. km, which is 27% of the total city area (605.40 sq.km). Per capita, it is 15.95 sq. km. How do you compare that with other cities?

By the way, those numbers above include green areas naturally formed, that is, mountains and riversides. Also the books says that "the majority of the green area (76%) is of forests, so there certainly is some limits in accessibility."

I whole heartly agree with your points on the minimal green areas in Seoul and other cities in SK. Although it may cost some for Koreans to expand and maintain turf areas, the added pleasance to their city living will offset the cost by many times over.

That fits much more with my expereince visiting, not many "parks" of areas of grassland but alot of mountainous forrested areas close to the center of the city.

I am so happy it was doomed already. Now, they need to come up with something more purposeful design that reflects Korean culture and is awe-inspiring to the eyes of beholders.

Hmmm...I dunno about that...I mean if it has a "Korean" design to it, I mean you wouldn't want to see a skyscraper that looks like a giant traditional hat do you? @[email protected] I know that many Chinese cities have a distinct "Chinese" design but I think Koreans tend to like the more "Modern" designs than traditional designs...hopefully the new designs turns out great tho lol
