Seoul Botanic Park
Public botanical gardens
Seoul Botanic Park was built in Magok, on the southwestern side of the Han River in Seoul, to create an urban public space that can introduce flora and cultures of 12 global cities and enhance ecological sensitivity. Generally, a greenhouse takes the form of a dome with a convex central section, Seoul Botanic Park’s greenhouse was designed in the form of a 100m-diameter concave dish. The greenhouse rim is higher than the central part, giving it the resemblance of a flower, thereby allowing visitors to engage in the exhibition space along the circulation path, letting them experience plants in a more three-dimensional way.
