The Republic of Korea’s capital city faced and resolved a series of obstacles to constructing a modern public building on a historic site.
The Seoul Institute
The Seoul Metropolitan Government established the Seoul Development Institute in 1992. It was renamed the Seoul Institute in 2012. Its goal is to establish a medium- to long-term vision for the city. It proposes social policies on welfare, culture, education, and industries; and urban management policies on city planning, transportation, safety, and the environment.
