[ K-Travel ] 3 Must See & Things to Do in Dongdaemun District, Seoul Korea
Hit : 1450   
1. Dongdaemun Design Plaza (Built by famous architect, Zaha Hadid)



Dongdaemun Design Plaza is architect Zaha Hadid’s sleek concept dubbed the ‘Metonymic Landscape’. The building, a curvaceous concrete structure with a silvery facade partly coated with lawns that rise up on to its roof, is a showcase for Korean and international design. It comprises multiple undulating levels of galleries, exhibition spaces, design shops and event halls. The attached Dongdaemun History & Culture Park includes museums that highlight past uses of this area, such as a 16th-century military camp.
 
 
During the site’s excavation, major archaeological remains from the Joseon dynasty were uncovered, including original sections of Seoul's City Wall. The remains have been incorporated into the park and include the arched floodgate Yigansumun. The Dongdaemun History Museum imaginatively displays the pick of the 2575 artefacts from the site and provides the historical background to the ancient foundations preserved outside. Look for the patterned section of pavement made from clay tiles. The Dongdaemun Stadium Memorial relives key moments from the stadium’s history and includes video clips.
