First built for the design community of Daehang-ro of Dongsung-dong in 1976, the gallery made its second move to Jangheung-gun of Gyeonggi-do in 1984, only to finally settle in the current location of Pyeongchang-dong in 1992. The historical building with rusted exteriors and paint peeling off the walls was designed by architect Moon Shin-Gyu. The gallery includes three floors of exhibtion and lecture space, as well as an outdoor concert hall for exhibtions on contemporary art, music events, and workshops. But if you are looking for a pensive moment, take a seat in the front gardens to get a handsome view of Bugaksan (Bugak Mountain) in the distance.
