"Hamhung, the second-largest North Korean city: Dynasty urbanism, colonial urbanism and socialist urbanism"
Presented by Dr. Hyung Min Kim, Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, The University of Melbourne
Hamhung is the second-largest city in North Korea with a population of 769,000. It has shown a unique development trajectory starting from an important regional military and administrative town. Changes in the structure and function of Hamhung were wide-ranging prior to and during colonial rule (1910–1945). After independence and the division, the Korean War (1950–1953) broke out, leaving Hamhung in utter ruins. The immediate reaction after the Korean War was to reconstruct the city, which was carried out with aid from socialist fraternal countries, notably East Germany. Socialist urban development patterns followed.
