ABSTRACT

Recently urban regeneration has focused on various non-residential urban revitalization by the construction of new commercialized areas or cultural space beyond the improvement of old deprived residential neighborhood environments. Although there are some positive aspects from urban regeneration including regional economic and social renewal, a vicious circle repeats that original residents are forced out and regional economy becomes decayed again due to the re-increased living expense and cost of rent. At this moment, it is very important to look into the spatial distribution and the change of regional characteristics of regeneration and gentrified urban areas for systematically diagnosing and improving social problems led by urban renewal. In this context, this paper attempts to characterize various urban generation types based on the urban landscape change according to the building use in Seoul. And then the spatial distribution and temporal change of regional characteristics are examined for regenerated areas. As a result of analysis, we successfully identified significant areas of Seoul by time period showing the substantial change of the building use related to residential, commercial, and cultural regeneration, and derived more detailed clusters with specific change of regional characteristics for each regeneration type. This research would help us extend spatial understanding of various urban regeneration and gentrification and could be utilized for urban planning and regional economic policy. Moreover it is expected to give a clue for micro-scale research for unknown areas of urban regeneration by providing the temporal change of regional characteristics systematically.
