Resurrection City: The Scale of Seoul's Urban Renewal Process

Tungsu Rock Scarecrows

An old shantytown built on a hillside right outside Suwon’s city walls was slated to be demolished. In protest, the evictees built “scarecrows” creating an especially strange view along the side of the road. They added banners calling for appropriate compensation for the evicted residents. The land was later converted into uninhabited parkland, making it clear that the project was about urban beautification.
