Adaptive reuse of industrial heritage in Europe and Korea
The city of Gwangmyeong, South Korea, is emerging from the shadow of its neighbour Seoul, to become one of the country's most promising cities. This represents a remarkable change for the traditionally mining-orientated city that had been relegated to the status of a satellite for Seoul. The seminal point of development of the city was the conversion of the abandoned mining site into a public park. This project has energised the city for socio-economic progress by attracting national and international tourists and entrepreneurs.
