The Goon-rearrangement in 1914 caused a significant change in the Goon office buildings' construction in the Japanese colonial period. The aim of this study was to discover the administrative procedure for the construction of them around the Goon-rearrangement and also in the 1910s generally, the Japanese government-general's policy for the construction and the buildings' condition. This study analyzes the official documents for the Goon-rearrangement between the Japanese government-general of Korea and the To, the digital images of the buildings kept in the National Archive of Korea and the newspapers published in 1910s. This paper examines what the effect the construction had under the stance of the Japanese government-general of Korea, which was very passive regarding the construction of new buildings.
