Urban Inspiration: Seoul Style

Seoul is one of the places where I find I naturally recharge my creative batteries. A bustling metropolis of over 25 million people, Seoul is an inspiring mix of traditional and modern; built environment and rugged nature. It spearheads technological development and holds tradition as sacrosanct. A walk through the heart of Seoul stirs the senses, jolts your soul. You feel pulled in many directions, a bit topsy turvy and above all inspired by the extremes.
