Seoul Gets a New Creative Culture HQ
Platoon Kunsthalle hopes to become an incubator for new ideas and a center for the growth and development of creative subcultures in Asia. The new building opened in the Cheongdam area of Seoul on April 11th and is made up of 28 stacked cargo containers, a nod to how subcultures can travel the world. The entire building can be taken apart and rebuilt anywhere in the world.
The facility functions as a communications base for anybody interested in creative fields like street art, graphic design, fashion, video art, programming, music, club culture, political activism etc. The intention is to use the space to host a range of activities like exhibitions, movie nights, concerts and multimedia performances, workshops, discussion panels and special events.
