Murals in Busan

Before our ‘Inclusion by Design’ seminar at the Design Center Busan, I explored the small streets leading into the hills surrounding the city. I found these murals, adding a bit of colour to an as yet undeveloped neighbourhood in this rapidly changing city.

The People and Produce of Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan

After our seaweed farm visit we spent a couple of hours exploring Busan’s Jagalchi fish market. Below, a few photos of the women running most of the stalls and of some of the wares on sale. The place, with its people, wealth of marine life and rainbow colours, has a wonderfully weathered seafaring atmosphere and is well worth a visit.
