This month we walk the Gyeongui Line Forest Park, which cuts across four miles of Seoul on part of the path of the Gyeongui Line train, which back in the colonial period ran all the way to Manchuria.

Having just been to Los Angeles for the first time in the two years since I moved from there to Seoul, I ask what these ever-changing cities can learn from one another. How much does Los Angeles remain a metropolis that "makes nonsense of history and breaks all the rules," in the words of architectural historian Reyner Banham, and to what exten ...…
 
Cities are host to a variety of cultural assets, from local music to theatre, community arts and nightclubs. But not all of them prioritize these assets or their infrastructure — the spaces where creatives work, live and perform. In the quest to attract the “creative class”, these cities can neglect the very culture creators who made them attra ...…
 
With Kurt on vacation, I talk to Na Seung-yeon about six distinctive characteristics of Seoul’s urban space as a whole, including its high-rise apartment complexes; its short-hop “village buses”; its culture of rooms, or bang (방), purpose-built for singing, watching movies, and playing board games; its outdoor eating and drinking spots known as ...…

Airbnb can be a contentious issue — it can give you a more affordable place to stay, a more authentic experience in a city, and allow you to meet new people from the places you’re visiting. On the other hand, it can “black out” entire blocks of tourists, drive up prices, and take valuable rental units off the market that could otherwise potenti ...…

Our cities are complex, and it will take more than one lens to tackle the issues we’re facing. But what does it mean to be interdisciplinary in urbanism?

We go just south of the Han River for a nighttime journey — punctuated by cats, coffee, ukulele riffs, tap dancing, and showers of sparks — through Mullae-dong.

This past weekend, the Third Wave Urbanism ladies, Kristen and Katrina, met for the second time to celebrate a birthday and record an episode — and promptly had technical difficulties (again).

Historically, “jaywalking” wasn’t an issue. Until the dominance of vehicles (and auto companies assisted by police forces) people and vehicles of all kinds mixed on American streets.

In our first video-inspired episode, we discuss what exactly these wonky requirements are, and unpack the nuance surrounding how to go about d ...…
 
It’s no secret that the justice system in the United States needs reform. A proposal in New York City aims to address one specific link in the chain: city jails. What if jails were community hubs? How does treating people with dignity improve recidivism rates? And can the design of a space make us behave better? This week’s episode is based on ...…
 
We make the journey to Yongma Land, a long-abandoned neighborhood amusement park in eastern Seoul that has recently drawn such crowds as couples on dates, engagement photographers, Instagrammers, and no small number of music videos and television drama shoots.

You know it when you walk by a spruced up front stoop, or walk through a park with plentiful benches — the little design elements make a big difference in our day to day urban lives. Now, thanks to the Center for Active Design, science has shown just how much of an impact these “extras” have on not only how welcome we feel in a place, but also ...…
 
Gentrification has almost been labeled a veritable dirty word in many urbanist circles, oversimplified by some to encompass “societal ills” that should probably be called out for what they are. But whether alluding to racism and displacement, rising rent prices or new development, it’s not an easy subject to cover (which probably explains why i ...…
 
How can we reimagine our streets and turn them into dignified, safe, and healthy places for people?

What does a smart city really look li ...…
