Dongdaemun Design Plaza: White Flowers For You!

After the white snow, let's talk about white flowers.

Last year, the Dongdaemun Design Plaza's installation of 20,000 white flowers with LED lights illuminated the whole 'grass hill' area of DDP, attracting crowds during the day and night until it's 'lights out'!

The DDP has then moved the installation to the other side of the Plaza, dividing the numbers between two rows of inclined gardens full of white flowers that need no watering; they need only a light switch!

A few weeks back, on my way home, I dropped by the installations to see how it was on this side of the DDP. And I discovered it's still as popular as ever. Couples, families, tourists and passers-by troop at the gardens for photographs and selfies.

The installation of these white flowers with LED lights will last until February 2016, after which they will be 'harvested'. 

I wonder if the DDP will give away these flowers. Maybe we should ask for some. After all, they said there are 25,550 flowers! I only want one....dozen. Ha-ha-ha!

The installation is behind the DDP, near the Maxstyle building. From Exit 1 of the Dongdaemun Culture and History Park Station, just walk towards the direction of Maxstyle at back of DDP.
