apartment buildings at Changsindong in Seoul

multistory apartment complex recently built

old fashioned Dongdaemun apartment
Changsindong is well known as an old village near by Dongdaemun, an important cultural property. There are various clustered buildings with the passage of years.This village is planned to be redeveloped soon.
A few days ago, I sketched two types of apartment building. One is new apartment complex and another is a very old apartment in this village.

I think it's very important that we should preserve the urban image by endless drawing.
