Completed in 2005 and proudly flouted as one of the most beautiful natural places in Seoul by the tourism board, it is poorly designed and hardly an example of a sustainable system, given that the water flow is artificially pumped in from the mains. From an architectural point of view there is much room for improvement. That said, the area is usually crowded with locals and tourists, giving visitors a 'chill out' space where regular public events can take place. It has improved the area significantly by providing an intermediary space, a break in the urban fabric, and this is what makes Cheonggyecheon a successful, sustainable urban project - not the stream, the trees nor the 12.04 km of walking paths. Similarly, the Hangang 'Renaissance' project currently in development is further evidence of the citizenry's desire for better environments.
