    Memorable design

    I visited there two times. The structure of this architecture is so dynamic that I felt like I'm in city rather than architecture. It was memorable

Additional Information

Introduction

Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) was designed by the British architect Zaha Hadid. With 3 floors below ground and 4 floors above ground, the plaza is divided into five parts: the art hall, exhibition center, design lab, creative design market and the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park. It is a highly multifunctional cultural space. Once night falls, the LED Rose Garden outside of Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) lights up. The many glittering flowers are like the stars blooming in the sky.
