Walk along the promenade Seoul
• Walk along the promenade Seoul
Pier Hagan river on the island of Yoido in Seoul.
Seoul itself has to walk and promenade - and a great place for a relaxing holiday, and a good example of how a simple means to get organized entertaining space.
Yoido Island, where there is an embankment - the business center of the city with high-rise buildings, but still very green, and besides skyscrapers on it is located, and several parks.
The road to the river from the subway - the main area of the promenade. Space is very large, but due to an uneven rhythm of improvement and the number of people - there is quite comfortable, and the scale does not press. But without the people and in the cold season, most likely, the place does not look so attractive.
small shops, all resting on the grass.
Some set up the tents.
Pay attention to the green grid for debris: in the cold season they are cleaned, and does not spoil the landscape nothing. A stationary ballot boxes virtually none.
All lawns with small hills. Hills also make the space interesting.
The second major attraction of the place on the embankment - an artificial shallow pond.
Children splashing in the water, adults simply wander barefoot. Very cool for a hot day.
The third focus area - the area with the bike rental, a large playground and marina.
it is very easy on the playground.
So the promenade looks from above, from the lookout Yuksam Building (60-storey skyscraper with golden glazed on the previous photo). Three main areas of attraction (an artificial pond, down to the embankment from the subway and bicycle rental area and boats) coupled bicycle and pedestrian walkways.
Along the tracks put modern sculpture.
Parametric shops. Almost all of the parametric objects is just as difficult to use as it is fashionable.
In some places, on firm pillars stretched tents.
They look quite gracefully
along the main track there is a stream, and went down the embankment immediately clear where to go. Pleasantly surprised, on the waterfront there is no trade pavilions - a fully recreational space.
And, of course, bike path.
which goes around the perimeter of the island
All along the track thick trees
Full feeling that you are somewhere in the country, although in the greenery visible skyscraper
Day at the waterfront laid free national Korean games that are played and adults.

Thus, the embankment of the Han River - a good example of how simple means to get organized interesting street space.
The initial data were: the proximity of the business center of Seoul to the river and the beautiful coastline on the opposite bank.
On the waterfront we have organized three main focus areas, and between them just broke lawns. And thus dispensed with global structures and complex architectural forms - several sheds in the general style and well-maintained footpaths.
The main disadvantage of the whole territory - in the cold season, there is not very comfortable to be: not like green lawns, the trees are bare, and the wind from the river, from which there is no place to hide.
A distinctive feature of the waterfront - bike path around the perimeter of the island, passing by green parkland.
