Spring sculpture

Created by world-renowned artists Coosje Van Bruggen and Claes Oldenburg. “Spring” is the monument of the nature regenerated in Seoul and the symbol of the Cheonggyecheon Restoration Project. The idea for the exterior spiral was inspired by a shell rising upwards like a pagoda. The vetical shape creates a dynamic atmosphere, representing the restored vitality of the stream and the cultural aspect of Seoul’s urban development.Looking inside, two colouful ribbons, inspired from Korean traditional dress of women, stream loosely down, one a luminous blue, the other a peony red, representing the unity of opposites in nature and human spirit.
