Dongdaemun Design Plaza
This post is especially dedicated to my sister in Islam – Fashida from Limbang, Sarawak.
A friend who is very generous in sharing her abundant love, insight and mostly her sincere friendship. I thank Allah for meeting an awesome person like you. May Allah grant mercy to your life in this world and in the hereafter. Amin.
The post this time is about DDP – Dongdaemun Design Plaza. A highly artistic building built in the middle of the fashion melting pot; Dongdaemun.
Myself is not a keen shopaholic of fashion, far from it. But when a design plaza rumored to be built around Dongdaemun area I just couldn’t wait to be its first visitor!
Simply put in simple words. Hehe..
Care for some more stories about Dongdaemun Design Plaza?
The scarf designed by Korean was gorgeous and lovely, so was the Korean lady. Very kind.
Me at the rooftop garden.
The area is quite spacious with the main building itself has about 5 floors and on top there is a park which was quite new when I first visited but by this time I guess the garden must be already fully developed.
It reminds me upon a building in Yokohama, Japan where they have a garden on top of its building. Nice view of the harbor too from the rooftop garden.
But..the future cannot exist if there is no past. So, the management of the building still hold a memory of the past by having a Dongdaemun History Museum. Free Admision to the museum.Nice!
They also build a waiting area in the middle of the space with some artifact mainly of rocks from the excavation.
Don’t forget to breath.in.the.design. ^^
Go to Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station. You can take either Line 2 (green), 4 (light blue) or 5 (purple) but the entrance to Dongdaemun Design Plaza from the subway is nearest to Line 2’s exit 13 and 14.
If you are from line 4 or 5, walk towards exit 13 or 14 and by the time you reach the entrance for Line 2, you will be able to see the entrance to Dongdaemun Design Plaza.
