A Dutch architecture studio will transform an old South Korean motorway into an impressive elevated public park.
MVRDV is in charge of creating the ‘Seoul Skygarden’, populating it with an incredible 254 different species of plants, which are organised according to the Korean alphabet.
In its new guise as the Skygarden, the currently abandoned section of the 1970s motorway will bring economic benefits to the area and act as a tranquil shortcut for pedestrians.
Winy Maas of MVRDV said that it “will change the daily lives of many people in Seoul for the better [as] a green oasis in the midst of all the traffic and concrete.”
Take a look at the stunning Skygarden here and tell us what you think.
