COMBINED CULTURAL SPACE IN SONGDO, ‘CAISSON 24’
The place to enjoy culture with a view of the endless silvery sea and the sunset with the tint of wine. The sensible cultural zone to feel with the heart and communicate through all five senses. This is the combined cultural space, ‘Caisson 24.’ Let’s take a look at the place that has already become a hot spot among foreigners and citizens.
Art & Culture Platform
The name, ‘Caisson 24’, was coined by combining the smart caisson method and the 24th park.
It is a free space developed with the hope that it will become a space for cultural communication for both domestic and foreign visitors. “Located in the Incheon Bridge Workings Plaza of which the foundation was constructed with the caisson method, ‘Caisson 24’, reflects the hope to become a cultural platform of Songdo International City as if it tells a variety of stories of the largest bridge completed by man’s wisdom and passion. I hope it becomes a smart, creative, and productive community space in the midst of the flood of various cultures,” said president Seungryang Heo (Songdo-dong, Yeonsu-gu) while introducing ‘Caisson 24’.
‘Thrill, courage, and touch’ are the keywords that this space pursues. At the ‘Culture Museum’, where there are concerts, performance is a daily event and romance fills the air, visitors can enjoy music videos and free movies at 6 p.m. every night.
Building A and B are designed to host various performances, exhibitions, and parties. The two silvery buildings stretch up their rectangular bodies as though they wish to reach the sky. The indoor space, as exotic as the unique exterior design, has a range of new cultural spaces for various uses where different cultures and arts coexist such as cafeteria, tea cafe, music box, an Italian restaurant that offers craft beer, gallery, culture museum, party room, photo studio, and rooftop.
Global Romantic Space Satisfying All Five Senses
In the Italian restaurant on the second floor, which offers craft beer and dishes prepared by professional chefs, you can enjoy the impressive moment with the beautiful glow of the sun setting over the West Sea across the huge window.
‘Caisson 24’ is crowded with people who come to enjoy the freedom of the spatial culture to the fullest such as those who came to enjoy a meal with family or lover, those who enjoy chatting with friends over the tea, and those who appreciate the view of the sunset at the outdoor observation deck.
The darkness gradually fell after the beautiful glow of the sun subsided, but people continued to come to enjoy the romantic night culture.
“I hope it becomes a relaxing place that relieves domestic guests as well as foreign guests. I especially hope that it becomes a community space in Songdo that visitors would remember while waiting many hours for their flight during t h e i r t r a n s i t at Incheon International A i r p o r t , ” wished President Heo.
