Standardized buildings surround the old stadium
“The gun’s cannon is broken” is a good sign of peace initiative. As we have already known,
At a glance, government and people claim it as a city development after peace exists. However, it reveals of unsustainable development. A development can be sustainable unless it gives equal value to economic, political and social-environmental arena; especially, the value to the next generation.
I myself witnessed the beauty of the Old and New Stadiums once there were no any buildings blocked the view. Even we did not enter into the stadiums we still could see athletes, football players, and both young and old people did exercise, and other sport activities. Such views provided us externality benefit. On the contrary, we can no longer see this view, but the tall buildings that shadow the whole stadiums. It is very unfortunate for the young and national image.
Raising this issue is not to against city development, but to suggest for a sound sustainable development from which our young generation will also benefit and national interest is taken into consideration at the first stage.
