Seoul, Korea

After years of anticipation, the curvacious Dongdaemun Design Park (DDP) by renowned architect Zaha Hadid opened yesterday. Situated at the East Gate (Dongdaemun) neighbourhood in central Seoul’s Jongno-gu district, DDP is destined to become one of the bustling city’s key cultural hubs, while also literally putting South Korea’s design, art, media, and new technologies on the world map. Read more about DDP’s inauguration here.

I was honoured to be one of a dozen designers from around the world asked to contribute a commemorative poster for the occasion of DDP’s opening. I don’t often quote myself, but this time it seemed appropriate…
