All year long

The architect accentuates Seoul's futuristic side with a truly curvaceous construction.

Inaugurated on 21 March 2014, Dongdaemun Design Plaza has since welcomed several million visitors. This cultural centre is a truly versatile venue, hosting exhibitions, plays and concerts. The choice of subjects is also eclectic, ranging from traditional Korean painting to digital art.

This landmark is the work of architect Zaha Hadid, known worldwide for her creations, such as the MAXXI in Rome and the Mobile Art Museum.
Around ancient walls and archaeological remains discovered during construction, the curvaceous, white and illuminated Dongdaemun is like a spaceship in the heart of the city. Embark on a journey to the future.
