On Thursday, the Aedes Network Campus Berlin (ANCB) Metropolitan Laboratory hosted a symposium to mark the opening of the exhibition "Seoul: Towards a New City," in collaboration with the City of Seoul. The city has identified three key objectives to help them strike a balance between restoration and change when moving forward with future development: revival of history, restoration of nature, and renewal of people's lives. Seven projects that reflect these goals are on display at the exhibition. For more details, continue reading after the break.

The seven areas of focus identified by the City of Seoul are: conservation and creative intervention on the City Wall; preservation of the Baeksa village residential area; public space creation in the Yongsan Park development; reuse of the Mapo Oil Depot; redevelopment of the Sewoon Mega Complex; new housing provision in the Gija-Chon residential area; and housing regeneration and community building.

The exhibition is on display at Aedes Am Pfefferberg until October 9, 2014. For more information, see the event website here.
