An elevated highway running along the course of a culverted stream into the centre of Seoul, Korea, was demolished in 2004, and replaced with a 6km urban park. New contemporary bridges and walkways were built, and the banks of the newly-revealed stream were animated with public artworks. Some of the motorway’s old concrete stanchions were kept as a memorial.
