Seoul District Launches Urban Street Galleries to Prevent Crime


SEOUL, March 19 (Korea Bizwire)Seoul’s Seocho District has established a city gallery to decorate a secluded area with lights and paintings.

The district’s new gallery, located in the underground walkway that connects Yangjaecheon Bridge and Express Bus Terminal Station, uses augmented reality (AR) technology to communicate with visitors and residents.

The gallery is part of a new initiative to renovate streets in a way that prevents crime and eradicates safety blind spots.


Using an AR application allows visitors to see moving pictures at the gallery, and visitors can take photos using the application and share them on social networks.

Alongside AR paintings, moving lights and benches have also been set up under Yangjaecheon Bridge to offer spaces for visitors to rest.
