The works provide and give an identity to space that went through a change from the 1960’s to the present time.

Looking at how Gentrification makes Korea lose its identity in historical landmarks as Korea gets globalized more and gets into a developed city, what would the city identity look like?

How can a space be translated into a poster and a book that shows the history of a place that could be seen as a graphic design piece.
