Trip Report DDP, Seoul - Architecture for Everyone

Sad to hear that Ms. Hadid passed away in Florida due to a heart attack...

My experience with Zaha Hadid and DDP - http://wp.me/p5Lw9a-7l

Zaha’s latest completed project is the DDP - Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, and it was just opened last year! Well, some iconic buildings in the world, like concert halls, commercial buildings, or museums – they are great. Yet sometimes you may not “interact” with the architecture. The great thing about DDP is because it’s open for public, it’s permanent, it’s located in a prime location, it has shops and it constantly has different theme exhibitions; therefore, people from all walks of life could be inside the building and “enjoy something” with it. I was there just in time to visit the exhibit for the super hit TV show “My Love from the Star” in 2014 :P. The exhibition hall showcased photos and fun facts about the show plus life-size shooting sets.

DDP is also surrounded by malls, and connected to malls. I had dinner @ the “n TABLE” – a buffet-style hot pot where inevitably to try a lot Korean style fried chicken and kimchi, all I can say is - Good price, nice food. Another place opposite to nTABLE is a dessert place for Patbingsu. Patbingsu is a Korea style shaved ice dessert, usually mixed with condensed milk (love) fruits or beans, refreshing for the boiling summer.
