However these disorder clean up due to design seoul policy.

Actually this spot deserted as car parking area and dead grey grass
but Oh sae hun rebuilding park and fountain
every summer many citizen and their kids chill out in this amazing park here
this is real essence of design seoul policy



This bridge rainbow fountains. now most seoul's bridge is "third world class' which mean have no meaning art or beauty. Just for used grey concrete strick line.
but this kind of easy and cheap idea changed city's landscape.
this is design seoul



ten of thousand street tree make arranged much more clean.
this is what i impress from japan city.

How many waste box in seoul? Those all dirty box redesign such like a clean one. this is design seoul's spirit

These are my favorite initiatives of Mayor Oh: lots of little changes that add up to a big difference in appearance. I think they help more than some of the giant projects proposed in the past would have. Every city needs this kind of thought and effort!

thanks design is really renovation policy in aspect of software.



Another design seoul policy was make a symbol of seoul city.
It called 'haechi 해치" mascot.
SEOUL have no symbol (except namsan tower or red neon cross of church)
So Seoul government try to imaging project to create some friendly city symbol
They choosed KOREA TRADITIONAL MYTH ANIMAL.


It called as HAECHI 해치
Actually haechi was korea traditional myth animal.
As you see above it's statue stand in front of KYONGBUK PALACE. 경복궁


So, Mr. oh sae hun make this "OLD KOREA MYTH ANIMAL" make as modern Seoul mascot with korean designers.





What I respect oh sae hun and his design policy. He 'respect DESIGNER AND ARCHITECT" as LIKE A GUILD/master.(later i'd like to mention about this issues more details)
This haechi mascot used for symbol of seoul.
At last UNESCO designated Seoul as design city.



many different type of haechi dolls.
firefighters/public officers/street cleaner etc




Also make a shop underground of GANGWAMUN SQUARE.
This shop had been very attractive to foreigners and seoulites.



Another type of haechi mascot beam on the wall of seoul cityhall.
Even this mascot paint on the body of TAXI.
With this cute mascot seoul become colorful and much more vibrant.





With these design policy annually Seoul begin held "international design conference"
In the conference seoul goverment encourage citizens to feel what is design and meaning of design and city life.



Most kids love this seoul mascot and Gray colors seoul city begin changed by kids and their parents(citizens).



But this amazing doll suddenly disappear from all around seoul city.
And foreigner can't buy haechi doll as souvenir.



Because Suddenly Mr oh sae hun RESIGN FROM his mayor duty.(not because ethical problem something but for democratic issues)


And after this guy(mr won sung ) become new seoul mayor.
But what ridiculous thing happen by new seoul mayor
He immediately stop all policy. one of them HAECHI mascot included.
He order deleted all haechi mascot from seoul city.



And substitute with HIS OWN caricature!
Now HAECHI disappear from seoul. Instead above personal caricature used most official admistration papers.
-closed Haechi internet homepage
-cut budget all about HAECHI MASCOT AND DESIGN SEOUL POLICY.
-To stop cartoon program for kids in broadcasting
-Haechi shop closed reshape as normal cafe(underground gwanwamun)

During his administration, Seoul is like North Korea and the ****** mayor like Kim Jongun... I hope that democracy will be also in this big corner of South Korea like in other part of this one (Busan is an example)

unify design of all public direction board.(color as dark, writing unify as seoul letters)


Street cleaner's clothe redesign
To make it more colorful and eye catching design


street cleaner car(road dust vaccum machine)
How many street cleaners and how many street cleaner car was in seoul. but at least over 100 car and 1000 cleaner wokers.
Unify all design and colors as SEOUL COLORS(before 24 district was shape as all different design).

Great thread indeed. But I wonder Inno, on some pictures we clearly see that the fašade of the buildings renovated are privately owned. Does the city give subsidies for the renovation work? As I assume the city does not pay for this lifting....

This is near my home ! 광림교회.현대고등학교 bus stop

great you live in 광림!
right that is private area but seoul government give a budget for renovation work for 90% cost
For example in my home town geumcheongu case

total 43,767 outside commercial sign among them 25,909 is illegal sign So 59.2% is illegal.

therefore seoul government guide them to demolish dirty sign instead changed to simple LED sign

Geumcheon disrict received from seoul about $ 200 thousands. So they just pay 10% money for renovation LED sign.


step by step design street construction

great thread!
I also like how they improved Itaewon (especially behind Hamilton hotel) and i also saw some big improvement and street re-constructions around 신촌 (Sincheon) and 이대 (Ehwa Woman's University).

But still, garbage and waste management needs more improvement, its still a problem:
http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news...99_155865.html

I hope that they can implement a better garbage management system. Currently the city is reducing public thrash cans unfortunately.

Amazing Seoul. That mayor deserves his own statue on a plaza named after him! He really turned Seoul into an A-class, fashion-forward city.

The current mayor is the one who screwed up big skyscraper projects like the Yongsan Redevelopment. If he gets reelected I doubt Yongsan Project will ever get under way.
