○Seoul Design Cloud is ‘a venue for civic engagement and communication through design’ place where designers, citizens, students, design experts, domestic and overseas networks, companies, institutions, schools, and communities gather to share ideas and discuss directions of the following: (1) The DDP Design Museum and its role as the Asian design hub and ways to make the location as an attractive tourist attraction, (2) The reinvigoration of DDP operations through win-win cooperative measures with the Dongdaemun commercial district, (3) The discussion regarding the recovery of the public nature in DDP functions through the input of the design ecosystem and civic engagement task force
○Especially, Seoul Design Cloud 2018 has been organized as a venue for civic engagement and communication to drive the reinvigoration of DDP that celebrates its 4th anniversary in 2018. Under the banner of ‘Design Cloud’, various programs have been prepared including conferences, exhibitions, marketplaces, events, and contests.
□During the same period (Sep. 17-26), DDP also features the ‘Design Cloud (Seoul Design Cloud)’ exhibition based on the concept of zero waste in three specific themes such as ‘Human City Design,’ ‘Seoul Design Brand’, and ‘Design by Dongdaemun.’
○Specifics of the three exhibitions held at DDP to seek ways to build Seoul into a human-centered, design-centered humane city include: (1) ‘The Sustainable Human City Design Exhibition’, designed to share future city visions based on design experiences in Asia and Europe; (2) ‘The Seoul Design Brand Exhibition’ that reinterprets the past and present writing supplies used in Korea, China, and Japan as ‘the tools of communication’ as well as the tools of inspiration and creation; and (3) ‘The Design by Dongdaemun Exhibition,’ a win-win project with the Dongdaemun commercial district, participated by small business owners and young designers.
○It is notable that ‘The Seoul Design Brand Exhibition’ aimed at reinterpreting writing supplies used in Korea, China, and Japan from the past to the present; features more than 1,000 pieces including those of Seoul showing off differences by generation, those of Japan introducing function-centered instruments, and those of China displaying a huge collection of past and modern writing supplies and instruments in association with the Palace Museum (located in the Forbidden City).
