Event description

Description

The city of Gwangmyeong, in Gyeonggi Province, is emerging from the shadow of bordering Seoul as one of the most promising cities in South Korea. This represents a remarkable change for a traditionally mining city relegated to the status of satellite for Seoul. The seminal point of the 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. This urban regeneration symposium will focus on industrial heritage-led regeneration in Europe and Korea. This event will bring together academics and urban professionals to discuss how the built environment of the city becomes sustainable by maximising the potential of industrial heritage.


Industrial heritage consists of the remains of industrial culture, which are of architectural, social and technological value. The adaptive reuse of industrial heritageinvolves the conversion of an industrial site, building or precinct from its former use to a new one. This plays a key role in realising sustainable urban regeneration because it gives renewed life to a site, building or precinct. However, management of abandoned industrial heritage is a difficult task requiring complex cooperation between the government and local community as well as collaboration of policy makers, planners, architects and designers. Therefore, this event will aim to highlight the contribution of the adaptive reuse of industrial heritage to urban regeneration by focusing on several successful cases and major policies in Europe and Korea.
