Dongdaemun is one of Seoul’s most popular neighborhoods for shopping and tourism. A central point in the district is the Dongdaemun Design Plaza — an architectural hotspot built to house conventions and exhibitions.
A walk around the DDP at any time of the year will show you some interesting art: from pop-up installations to rooftop gardens, historic artifacts to the neofuturistic building itself (neofuturistic architecture is real big in Seoul). This March, Seoul Fashion Week was held at the DDP.
A garden of more than 21,000 LED long-stemmed, white roses planted into the DDP’s rooftop garden has been a most popular art installation in the area lately. The rose garden will be on display from April 18, 2015 through Feb. 29, 2016.
The sight is super breath-taking and goes on forever. You will almost definitely have to nudge some selfie-taking couple out of the way to get a good look, but, you know, that’s 2015 for you.
