Seoul Station is one of the most favorite sketching subjects for me. I often sketched the famous historic station several times including the 30th Worldwide Sketchcrawl on April, 2011. It was very fine last Saturday, we Seoul urban sketchers met at Food Court on the 3rd floor inside Seoul Station building for sketching around the station building and Seoullo 7017, new attraction for citizens and tourists. The Seoullo 7017 project is completed five months ago, that promotes the regeneration of Seoul Station area by remodelling the old Seoul Station overpass construction into pedestrian walkaways. There are a variety of facilities along Seoullo 7017, including an information center, cafes, gardens, and stages. Seoullo 7017 itself is open all day, every day for many visitors to enjoy at their leisure.
At first, I began sketching here and there in and out of the station building from a new perspective, looking for the new scenes I didn't draw before. After lunch, I walked up to the Seoullo 7017 walkaways and enjoyed sketching the attractive panoramic scenes of downtown Seoul. Many pedestrians and children came up to me and were very interested in sketching on the spot quickly in the crowd. I was attracted by the colorful buildingscapes and enjoyed the lively sketch time as if I were floating in the air.
서울역과 그 주변은 명실상부한 어반 스케치의 중심부라 하겠습니다.
구역사(문화역서울 284)와 현대식 복합민자역사 컴플렉스 하모니~~
날로 치솟는 주변 고층빌딩들과 대비되는 철길 주변의 근대 모습들,
고가도로를 개조해 Seoullo 7017로 새로 태어난 명물 공중보행로는
어반 스케쳐들의 꾸준한 작업을 위해 마련된 공간이라고 생각합니다.
