It’s quite a while since I posted some photos from my travels – which is only because all my travels in the last year or so have been to places I have posted about before.
The purpose of my visit is to attend the Asia Pacific Partner Conference hosted by GRAPHISOFT. I am also conducting a day long workshop focusing on ArchiCAD in Education.
Having arrived late last night I woke to a chilly minus one degree but decided to kick the day off with a walk as I had spotted something from the hotel window.
What I spotted and subsequently found was Zaha Hadid’sÂ Dongdaemun Design Plaza.
Having only opened this year it is no surprise I never saw it last time I was here over five years ago – though construction began not long after my previous visit.
The building is a massive 85,000 m2 of floor area and features:
- Design Plaza
- Dongdaemun History & Culture Park
- Underground Plaza
The scale and form of the building are impressive andÂ both the concrete and metal fabrication detailing is absolutely impeccable.
Check out the photos below – and also the Interiors on Zaha Hadid’s website.
