Historic Buildings And Democracy Square
The Historic Buildings occupy the center of the Asian Culture Complex. The buildings, formerly the headquarters of the Jeonam Provincial office, and Democracy Fountain, were witnesses to the tragic uprisings that occurred on May 18 1980 that led to Korean democracy. The project mandate was to provide a memorial to the tragic events of 5/18 and, in the spirit of regeneration, to house the Asian Democratic Civic Center, Event Hall, NGO Interchange Center, and administrative facilities for the Asian Culture Complex. The buildings comprise 8,000 sm of space and will be completely renewed, including the updating of all building finishes, systems, and envelope.
