Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) Seoul welcomes over 8.5 million visitors in its first year

Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), Seoul, Korea welcomed more than 8.5 million visitors to its exhibitions and events since opening at the end of  March 2014.

Composed around Seoul’s ancient city wall and the historic artefacts discovered during its construction, DDP connects the city’s contemporary culture and history with the emerging  nature of its new public park. A place for people of all ages, DDP is a forum for the exchange of ideas, engaging its community in a collective dialogue where many inventive contributions feed into each other, allowing talents and ideas to flourish.

Current DDP exhibitions include ‘Design 36.5’, exploring social diversity and discrimination through the many design innovations and biomedical solutions that have helped overcome human limitations. DDP is also presenting ‘Kansong Mun Hwa’, an exhibition of exquisite landscape paintings from the Kansong Art Museum’s prized collection of traditional Korean art.

DDP builds new synergies and opportunities for Korea’s creative communities with its program of events and exhibitions that include host to Seoul Fashion Week, Apple iPhone 6 launch, Culture Chanel and the Style Icon Awards.
