Snapshots from the second day in Seoul. After site visit to the Ewha Campus Complex MovingCities went exploring Seoul‘s Inner Circle Line. Build between 1978 and 1984, it is the city’s longest subway line, with a total length of 60,2 kilometer and 43 stations. Investigating the state of the contemporary city in and around stations like Sinseol-dong, Sinsa, Banpo, Dairim and Dangsan gave some impression of the interplay of density – big housing blocks surrounded by semi low-rise self-built structures – and mobility in this 10 million inhabitants metropolis.
