The city of Seoul is crossed by the River Han, large of a kilometer. Despite its potential, this major public space remains difficult to access due to the urban motorway going the length of the river’s banks. To resolve the problem, the City of Seoul has organised a consultation of architects to renovate existing tunnels and to create new ones. Since 2007, thirty-eight tunnels have been restored. Much frequented, they are appreciated by inhabitants of Seoul.
