Dutch architecture studio MVRDV has completely transformed a 1970s highway into an elevated park in Seoul, South Korea. Dubbed Seoullo 7017, folks traversing the intricate new walkway will pass Seoul Station and Namdaemum Market alongside the Malli-dong, Jungnim-dong and Cheongpa-dong neighborhoods. All in all, the overhead structure is made up of a series of bridges and stairs that are connected to hotels as well as shops. Not to mention, there are a handful of “satellite” gardens placed throughout the pedestrian-friendly footpath.

“Located in the heart of Seoul, a true plant village has been realized on a former inner-city highway in an ever-changing urban area,” MVRDV told Dezeen. “The pedestrianized viaduct next to Seoul’s main station is the next step towards making the city, and especially the central station district, greener, friendlier and more attractive, whilst connecting all patches of green in the wider area.”

Check out Seoullo 7017 for yourself above and learn more about the walkway by visiting MVRDV’s official website.
