  A South Korean city designed for thefuture takes on a life of its own

  A)Getting around a city is one thing—and then there's the matter of getting from one city to another.One vision ofthe perfect city of the future:a place that offers easy access to air travel.

  In2011,a University of North Carolina business professor named John Kasardapublished a book called Aerotropolis:TheWay We'll Live Next.Kasarda says future cities should be builtintentionally around or near airports.The idea,as he has put it,is to offerbusinesses"rapid,long-distance connectivity on a massive scale."

  B)"The 18th century really was awaterborne(水运的)century,the 19thcentury a rail century,the 20th century a highway,car,truck century—andthe 21st century will increasingly be an aviation century,as the globe becomesincreasingly connected by air,"Kasarda says.Songdo,a city built fromscratch in South Korea,is one of Kasarda's prime examples.It has existed forjust a few years."From the get-go,it was designed on the basis ofconnectivity and competitiveness,"says Kasada."The government builtthe bridge directly from the airport to the Songdo International BusinessDistrict.And the surface infrastructure was built in tandem with the newairport."

  C)Songdo is a stone's throw from SouthKorea's Incheon Airport,its main international hub(枢纽).But it takes a lot more than a nearbyairport to be a city of the future.Just building a place as an"international business district"doesn't mean it will become one.ParkYeon Soo conceived(构想)this city of the future back in1986.He considers Songdo his baby."I am a visionary,"he says.Thirtyyears after he imagined the city,Park's baby is close to 70 percent built,with 36,000 people living in the business district and 90,000 residents ingreater Songdo.It's about an hour outside Seoul,built on reclaimed tidalflats along the Yellow Sea.There's a Coast Guard building and a tall tradetower,as well as a park,golf course and university.

  D)Chances are you've actually seen thisplace.Songdo appears in the most famous music video ever to come out of SouthKorea."Gangnam Style"refers to the fashionable Gangnam district inSeoul.But some of the video was filmed in Songdo."I don't know if youremember,there was a scene in a subway station.That was not Gangnam.That wasactually Songdo,"says Jung Won Son,a professor of urban development atLondon's Bartlett School of Planning."Part of the reason to shoot thereis that it's new and nice."

  E)The city was supposed to be a hub forglobal companies,with employees from all over the world.But that's not how ithas turned out.Songdo's reputation is as a futuristic ghost town.But thereality is more complicated.A bridge with big,light-blue loops leads into thebusiness district.In the center of the main road,there's a long line of flagsof the world.On the corner,there's a Starbucks and a 7-Eleven—all of theinternational brands that you see all over the world nowadays.

  F)The city is not empty.There aremothers pushing strollers,old women with walkers—even in the middle of theday,when it's 90 degrees out.Byun Young-Jin chairs the Songdo realestate association and started selling property here when the first phase ofthe city opened in 2005.He says demand has boomed in the past couple of years.Most of his clients are Korean.In fact,the developer says,99 percent of thehomes here are sold to Koreans.Young families move here because the schoolsare great.And that's the problem:Songdo has become a popular Korean city—more popular as a residential area than a business one.It's not yet thefuturistic international business hub that planners imagined."It's agreat place to live.And it's becoming a great place to work,"says ScottSummers,the vice president of Gale International,the developer of the city.The floor-to-ceiling windows of his company's offices overlook Songdo CentralPark,with a canal full of kayaks and paddle boats.Shimmering(闪烁的)glass towers line the canal’s edge.

  G)"What's happened is,because wefocused on creating that quality of life first,which enabled the residents tolive here,what has probably missed the mark is for companies to locatehere,"he says."There needs to be strong economic incentives."Thecity is still unfinished,and it feels a bit like a theme park.It doesn't feelall that futuristic.There's a high-tech underground trash disposal system.Buildings are environmentally friendly.Everybody's television set is connectedto a system that streams personalized language or exercise classes.

  H)But Star Trek this is not.And to someof the residents,Songdo feels hollow."I'm,like,in prison for weekdays.That's what we call it in the workplace,"says a woman in her 20s.Shedoesn't want to use her name for fear of being fired from her job.She goesback to Seoul every weekend."I say I'm prison-breaking on Fridaynights."But she has to make the prison break in her own car.There's nohigh-speed train connecting Songdo to Seoul,just over 20 miles away.

  I)The man who first imagined Songdo feelsfrustrated,too.Park says he built South Korea a luxury vehicle,"likeMercedes or BMW.It's a good car now.But we're waiting for a good driver toaccelerate."But there are lots of other good cars out there,too.Theworld is dotted with futuristic,high-tech cities trying to attract the biggestinternational companies

  J)Songdo's backers contend that it'sstill early,and business space is filling up—about 70 percent of finishedoffices are now occupied.Brent Ryan,who teaches urban design at MIT,saysSongdo proves a universal principle."There have been a lot of utopian(乌托邦的)cities in history.And the reason wedon't know about a lot of them is that a lot of them have vanishedentirely."In other words,when it comes to cities—or anything else—itis hard to predict the future.

  36.Songdo’s popularity lies more in itsquality of life than its business attraction.

  37.The man who conceives Songdo feels disappointedbecause it has fallen short of his expectations.

  38.A scene in a popular South Korean musicvideo was shot in Songdo.

  39.Songdo still lacks the financialstimulus for businesses to set up shop there.

  44.Acording to an urban design professor,it is difficult for city designers to foresee what happen in the future.
