Down near our apartment they're making way for a new road and are in the process of tearing down a number of buildings.
I thought the destruction made for some interesting shots.
Staircases starting in mid-air and leading to nowhere hold a certain tragic romance for me.
To see structures ripped bare, their guts on diplay seems almost pornographic in an architectural sort of a way.
The familiar becomes strange and the memory of what once was is somehow tainted.
Itaewon is changing rapidly and I worry that some of its crumbly rugged old charms will be lost.
