Comprising five zones – an art hall, museum, design lab, design market and Dongdaemun history and culture park – the scheme caters to the city’s population, but also reaches out to the global community.

Hosting a variety of high-profile events and programs, there are 60 unique hotspots each featuring a story of creativity based on the lifecycle of the Dongdaemun area, which stays awake 24 hours a day.
