Seoul. Paesaggio Urbano e Patrimonio Culturale della Città Olimpica Seoul. Urban Landscape and Cultural Heritage of The Olympic City
Since ancient times, the architecture for sport has characterized the urban design of cities. Since the end of the 19th century, with the modern Olympic Games, the topic of sports architecture has become the subject of design competition and has facilitated the development of many cities. In fact, the hospitality of the Olympic Games has always been an opportunity for urban regeneration and modernization. However, this heritage has not always been preserved and restored.
An exemplary case is that of the city of Seoul, which in 1988 hosted the Summer Olympic Games with the construction of Olympic Park. A large urban park in the heart of the city, with sporting and cultural facilities, today the fifth largest outdoor urban art park in the world, with over two hundred sculptures by international artists.
This paper aims to focus the reader's attention on the value of this urban project, as a good practice to rethink the value of the architecture of sport. Sport is culture and therefore sport is a cultural heritage. The Olympic Park case certainly opens up an interesting debate about the future of architecture for sport, even as a World Heritage Site.
