A publication celebrating Koreatown's diverse density
The visual language of Koreatown—the signage, the architecture, and visual vernacular—lies somewhere between American and Korean cultures. Historically, Koreatown as a cross-cultural space has been influence by people from different backgrounds and cultures, creating its rich culture. Koreatown is home to locals, immigrants, and is a haven for international students. It also serves as a cultural playground for visitors/tourists.
