Currently in its fourth year running, House of Vans Seoul celebrates skate culture through art, music and camaraderie for the second year in a row at Dongdaemun Design Plaza — a sprawling design tour de force, conceived by the late Zaha Hadid and Samoo. Easily recognized by its fluid curvature and neofuturistic, matte silver panels, the major landmark is located in the heart of Seoul’s vibrant commercial district, Dongdaemun. Hosted outdoors on the plaza’s ground floor, an array of attractions drew in a crowd all weekend.

From the the screen-printing workshop with Dekal, to the DIY Sk8-Hi workshop with Original Punk, the event was filled with plenty of opportunities for attendees to get their creative juices flowing. Australian photographer and frequent Palace collaborator Mike O’Meally also presented an inspiring photo exhibition of his works, which proved to be a seamless segue-way for his Master Class. As with previous years, a mini ramp was set up, showcasing a mix of both novice and experienced skateboarders and BMX riders alike.

Rounding off the daytime activities was the Street Market, which extended along a strip of the area’s sloping walkway. Among its lineup was a dynamic selection of artists, vendors and community-oriented organizations. Lighting up DDP after the sun descended was a series of performances by South Korea’s face-melting punk and post-rock bands, playing on the House of Vans stage.
