City Center, Tel Aviv university research center for cities and urbanism, in collaboration with the S. Daniel Abraham Center for international and regional studies, are inviting you to join a special lecture from the series:


Comparative Urbanism: The Local Dimensions of Cities


Lecture title:

Birth of Metropolis and Resilience:
A Retrospective Criticism for Seoul Development


Prof. Chung Ho Kim | College of Urban Sciences, University of Seoul


Time   | June 14, 10:00 Tel Aviv Yafo / 16:00 Seoul 


Venue | via Zoom


Seoul has been the capital of the Korean Peninsula for more than 600 years since it was built as a planned city of Joseon Dynasty in 1394. However, Seoul experienced the rapid and large-scale urban transformation for recent 60 years. This lecture investigates how Seoul has been created and evolved into a metropolis of 10 million population, retrospectively criticizing Seoul’s urban development under the social-ecological resilience theory. For this, the lecture identifies the mechanism of urban development, and discusses the resulting accomplishments and consequences in terms of a variety of spatio-temporal scales.
