International Design Competition for the Gwangju Biennale Exhibition Hall in South Korea

The International Design Competition for the Gwangju Biennale Exhibition Hall has been launched.

Purpose

Since the Gwangju Biennale was first launched in Korea in 1995, it has been held on 14 occasions. As a result, it has taken root as a world culture brand, however it has faced a number of limitations in its development due to the facilities which make it difficult to reflect new exhibition trends as time has passed.

So, we have established a new exhibition space which can reflect the flow of contemporary art and provide an exuberant citizen-friendly, cultural delight, and healing space to an urban area as well as strengthening the status and identity of the Gwangju Biennale and preparing for the holding of stable and methodical events as a world culture brand.
