The Shape of Nostalgia


Crystal Palace that has emerged as a symbol of the result of imperialism and the industrial revolution. However, It is still precious the memories of the individual wanders in it. November 30, 1936. 

The complete destruction of the Crystal Palace by fire was obviously a huge historical event. And now, the resplendent building in history has disappeared, and only the image of it remains as a remnant to us. It is not only a cultural symbol but also exists in our consciousness as a motif.
