Seoul is a concentrated city that has both a long history and a modern society. The cityscape of downtown Seoul has rapidly changed in the late 20th century due to robust economic growth over the past 50 years. In the heart of Seoul surrounded with a number of the high-rise buildings, a few of the elegant western style buildings have well preserved as the modern cultural heritage. All in all, these buildings were completed in the early 20th century and located at financial and business districts, such as Myeongdong, Namdaemunno, and so on.
I sketched the precious historical buildings in the crowded streets, looking back on the last century.
종로에서 남대문, 서울역으로 이어지는 서울 근대 상업의 중심에 피어있는 문화재~~
고층빌딩 숲 사이로 작은 등불처럼 남아 서울 100년 근대사의 자취를 비추어 줍니다..
르네상스, 바로크.. 건축양식으로서의 가치와 더불어~~ 선대의 소중한 시대적 유산입니다.

( 좌우 대칭형 문화재 건물은 그리기 쉬워 보이나, 조금만 틀려도 금새 표가 나기 때문에 스케치 연마하기에 알맞는 좋은 소재입니다...)
