Bukchon Views (1)

Photographs of Bukchon taken from Anguk. Bukchon is often described as a "hanok village" yet arial views show it is more a small collection of increasingly isolated hanok islands that are being steadily encroached by new buildings in a miscellany of modern idioms. In 1983, most buildings in Bukchon were hanoks. Today (September2010), the hanoks are only a small and declining minority of the buildings. Photographs © David Kilburn.

Liquid Hanoks

Equipment is installed to pump more ready-mixed concrete into Kahoi-dong 31-119 on October 8th 2010. The pump and concrete supply are located in the "Hanwha Village" (formerly Kahoi-dong 1 district) with piping running through the streets to Kahoi-dong 31-119. Once upon a time, hanoks were built mainly of wood but today, Seoul's new "hanoks" come ready to be pumped out of concrete containers.

The Ghost Town

At night, Kahoi-dong 31 becomes a ghost town. The only lighting comes from the stars and the street lights. The "homes" are empty. Where once there was a community of people there are now just empty buildings. These pictures were taken between 11pm and midnight on October 8th 2010.
