Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) is a major urban development landmark in Jung-gu, Seoul designed by British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, the 2004 Laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize. It serves as a venue for exhibitions, fashion shows, forums, and domestic and international events. DDP is known for its unique design, regarded as the “world’s largest atypical 3D structure.”
DDP comprises various facilities for exhibitions and shopping—notably DDP Art Hall, DDP Museum, DDP Design Lab, Oullim Square, and Dongdaemun History and Culture Park, the latter of which exhibits artifacts from the former Dongdaemun Stadium Memorial.
Not only is DDP famous for its architectural design, which attracts many people to take pictures, but it is visited by citizens and tourists alike as both a must-visit attraction and rest area that symbolizes the Dongdaemun area in connection with the surrounding commercial district.
