Why is it Special?

SCB's publications began with a series of food and drink city maps and apps, and since 2015 we have published a series of architecture and design guide maps. The New York Times describes the maps as "part design manifesto, part urban architecture guide". SCB prints all of their titles on recycled FSC-certified paper with a carbon-neutral printer.

Celebrating the most remarkable concrete buildings in Seoul, Concrete Seoul Map is a two-sided, bilingual guide including a beautiful map of Seoul, an introduction by Korea University-based architectural historian Professor Hyon-sob Kim, photographs by Yongjoon Choi, and details of over fifty selected buildings. The map texts are in English and Korean.

Concrete Seoul Map offers a unique look at Seoul’s unsurpassed history of concrete architecture from the 1960s to today. Concrete construction, heralded by renowned architects such as Swoo-geun Kim, is now the signature of many Korean architects. This map highlights the most unique and influential examples of concrete buildings and structures across the city. Architects featured include Chung-up Kim, Swoo-geun Kim, MVRDV, Steven Holl, Zaha Hadid, Sae-min Oh, Hee-soo Kwak, and many others.
