[Urban Planning News] “Seoul Station 7017 Info Garden” Open to the Public
The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) has opened ‘Seoul Station 7017 Info Garden’, an elevated pedestrian experience center, in Seoul Plaza. The Seoul Station 7017 Info Garden is comprised of two cylindrical structures used as an exhibition hall and information hall, ten large Tree Pots, and three lights. The total surface area is 218㎡.
The Info Garden was designed by Winy Maas, a world-renowned expert in architecture and landscaping, who won the architectural design for the Seoul Station 7017 Project.
The exhibition hall is a place where citizens can experience the elevated walkway near Seoul Station, which will be constructed in 2017, and see the changes of the entire Seoul Station area through virtual images using smart media technology, and express their opinions on the changes. The smart media table installed in the center displays the history of the elevated walkway near Seoul Station and the 3D images of the walkway after the completion through a touch screen.
The walls of the exhibition hall are comprised of glass on all sides, so the inside of the hall can be easily seen from the outside, and the passersby can show their interest in the elevated walkway near Seoul Station.
The information hall will be used as a help desk, where staff provide citizens with detailed information about the Seoul Station 7017 Project, including the elevated walkway near the Seoul Station.
