International Forum on Urbanism Kicks Off at CNU

 The 2014 International Forum on Urbanism and its summer school semester kicked off at Jeonam National University on July 5th with the participation of professors and students majoring in urban design and construction.

Participating scholars made a visit to the construction site of the national Asia Culture Complex and the Gwangju Folly sites as well as the old downtown area in Gwangju’s Dong-gu district.

Taking part in the forum to seek effective measures to revitalize old parts of the downtown area in Gwangju and to propose ways to improve the operation of the Asia Culture Complex, the participating scholars are composed of professionals in urban design and construction from world-class universities, including Beijing University and Tokyo University.

Until July 17th, the professors, along with some 70 university students specializing in urban studies, will seek effective ways for achieving sustainable growth in urban areas and developing detailed methods to this end.
