JCC Creative Center


Same as JCC Art Center, JCC – JEI(Jaeneung Educational Institute) Creative Center – Art Center was designed by Tadao Ando, and the local architect was Gansam Partners. The Art Center and the Creative Center buildings are located close to each other in Jongro-gu, Seoul. Tucked a block away from the busy Changgyeongung-ro, the Creative Center shows similar material such as exposed concrete and diagonal/triangular form as we have seen in Glass House designed by the same architect. It also had a bridge which reminded me of Azuma House. At the time I visited(2015) the building was not opened to public yet, but now they have architecture tours available everyday upon reservation made a week in advance.
