Thanks you guys!
The next installment should be in a day or two.

Wow, great icons! How did you manage to do those? Very stylish design.
I just used photoshop.
For the buttons, I just used an image code for the url name.
It is rather time consuming, but I enjoy it.

City Hall Building Closes a Chapter


The main building of Seoul City Hall officially closed, Monday, having survived the turbulent modern history in the capital for 82 years.​

By Kim Tae-jong
Staff Reporter

The landmark main building of Seoul City Hall was vacated Monday, 82 years after it was founded. Mayor Oh Se-hoon and other city officials have moved into the annex located in Seosomun, a few blocks away from the main building and started official work there on Monday.

The closing came as the city government is building a new, modern building in the site behind the old one, preserving the old stone walled main building as a historical site.

``We'll temporarily shut down the main building of the City Hall, closing its 82 year history,'' Mayor Oh said in a statement. The construction of a new main building is expected to take about three years, he said.

Built in 1926 as a government building under Japanese colonial rule (1910-1945), the main building has since survived the nation's important historical moments including liberalization from Japanese colonial rule, the Korean War (1950-1953) and the era of modernization and industrialization, and has become a symbol of democracy here.

The building has long served as a government building except for 10 months when North Korean soldiers occupied it during the Korean War.

A total of 33 mayors have taken office at the building since inaugural mayor Yi Bum-seung in 1945 until the 33rd mayor Oh Se-hoon.

Registered as a city cultural heritage, the building will go through renovation to reopen as ``Civic Center'' by February 2011 in time for the completion of the new main building. The center will house a library and city promotion center.

more information on the final design can be found here: [x]

I actually don't really like the final design.
It clashes with its surrounding, in my opinion.

thank the Lord that they are preserving the old city hall. I hate it when older buildings get destroyed to build newer modern buildings (with the exception of those ugly commie blocks in Yeoido Island Han river waterfront):lol:
