Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) is located in the center of Korea's trendy Dongdaemun fashion district. DDP was designed by Zaha Hadid, the world's architect, and opened on 
March 21, 2014. It will serve as a key venue for design-related shows and conferences, exhibitions, and other events and gatherings. The external appearance of DDP is beyond anyone's expectation. That looks like a fantastic spaceship with free-flowing curved forms. Recently, I used to sketch this attractive subject several times while under construction, and always impressed by the powerful, curving forms of gigantic buildings.
Last Saturday, I sketched the atypical forms of elongated structures in many points with Seoul usk members.
동대문 역사문화공원의 새 명물 DDP는 비정형 곡선의 거대하고 환상적인 건축물로 
보는 시점마다 다양한 구도가 변화무쌍하며 스케쳐들에게 무한한 소재를 제공합니다.
서울 성곽 복원과 함께 꿈과 애환이 서린 동대문 운동장의 옛 모습을 떠올리며~~~
논란도 많았지만 이제는 어엿한 서울의 새로운 상징물로 친근해지기를 기대합니다.
스케치 마당에 새로 오신 분들을 진심으로 환영합니다!!

그리는 자체에 몸을 실어 가노라면~~~
스케치의 시간은 한정되고 그릴 대상은 보면 볼수록 무진장 많고,시간의 흐름속에 소재도 움직이며 쉬지 않고 돌아가니...첨부터 계획하지 않던 작품들이 그때그때 여기저기 나오는 것이 스케치 작업의 묘미 같습니다.
