This series is the archive of city heritage that fades. Records find expression in contemporary visual arts, such as design, painting, and photography, depending on the subject that disappears. The design studio Graphicabulary recorded Seoul's monumental hotel in artwork and graphic patterns in this book, disappearing after 40 years of business from 1983 to 2022.

The hotel opened under Seoul Hilton International and has had several minor name changes in 40 years. Under Hilton Worldwide's brand policy or sometimes the hotel's management contracts, the hotel has been renamed Seoul Hilton, Millennium Seoul Hilton, and Millennium Hilton Seoul. In this book, we will call this hotel Hilton Seoul, two words that have never been erased.

Hilton Seoul was a modern architectural heritage with so much architectural significance. It was the second international chained hotel to open in Korea and had greatly influenced the industry. And above all, this hotel contains all the visitors' memories and meanings.
