condenCITY_113 density5 TEMPORARY

Few cities I have ever been in or lived in appear as temporary as Seoul. It is an organism of continual change constructed on temporal foundations. Seoul's motions of shift and alteration are unsettled as public ways and buildings are uncovered and recovered continuously. Spaces are stripped bare to foundational floors and remade in timely architectural outfits. The base foundations of reinforced post and concrete slab, absolved of any historical value, are suitable for quick transformation. Seoul permutates at a moments notice. 

Its density and concentrated form is life-like as it moves along in constant transformation.
