ULI Case Studies
Located in the city of Jeonju, about 200 kilometers south of Seoul, South Korea, Jeonju Hanok Village is a neighbourhood started in 1910s that grew significantly in the 1930s as an area of affluence. A hanok- also known as giwajib, or tile-roofed house - with a courtyard was significantly more expensive to build than the then-common form of dwelling that had rice straws for roof. The report is available in English and Chinese.
A Case Study of Wuhan's Yangtze Riverfront Park with Sasaki
The Yangtze is Asia’s longest river and drains one-fifth of China’s land area. Revered as the “mother river,” it has nurtured China’s history, culture, and economy since the dawn of civilization. But the relationship between the people and the river has, in recent years, grown tense. Despite unprecedented advancements in engineering, major cities along the Yangtze increasingly suffer from mounting flooding damage—demonstrating that the river is far from tamable. Wuhan’s Yangtze Riverfront Park leverages the river’s dynamic flooding to nurture a rich regional ecology, reinforces Wuhan’s traditional identity and wisdom derived from living alongside this ever-changing river, and creates a dynamic recreational experience which is acutely attuned to the rise and fall of the Yangtze’s waters, proving that—despite seasonal flooding—the river is one of the city’s most valuable resources. This 15-minute ULI webinar was presented by presented by Michael Grove, Chair of Landscape Architecture, Civil Engineering, & Ecology, Sasaki and Tao Zhang, Principal, Sasaki.
