Platoon Kunsthalle, Seoul

Seoul's Platoon Kunsthalle is a household name: the avant-garde design, industrial interiors and arty, underground vibe are its main draws, and the city’s creative classes flock to its events.
ADDRESS
97-22, Nonhyeon-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea


The Overview

Inspired by Platoon Cultural Development’s flagship project in Berlin, Platoon Kunsthalle caused a stir when it opened its doors in 2008 in Seoul’s Cheongdam district, an upscale neighborhood known mainly for its luxury brand shops, commercial galleries and sleek design houses. Twenty-eight cargo containers were piled together to form a three-story, 415-square-meter facility that houses an events hall, library, artists’ studios, restaurant and rooftop bar, not to mention plenty of communal areas. Today, the space is a household name: its avant-garde design, industrial interiors and arty, underground vibe are one of Cheongdam’s main draws, and Seoul’s creative classes flock to its events, including DJ nights on Thursdays and Fridays, flea markets on the first Saturday night of each month, and exhibitions by street artists such as Tilman Porschuetz and VS Force.
