MORE INFORMATION

June 24(Fri) - September 25(Sun)

Civil engineering is the foundation for designing an entire town to support comfortable, high-quality life. Although our daily lives are closely connected to it, there are not too many opportunities to perceive it. The Exhibition Planning Team of civil engineering experts and participating designers as well as artists encourage the visitors to get to know civil engineering in greater depth. The Exhibition shows the history of civil engineering from the high economic growth period to today, as it expresses its dynamic force with sound and images. It also looks at civil engineering facilities through actions such as “dig,” “retain,” “pile,” and “support.” Through installations created by various creators, we can communicate our thoughts in a fun and an easy-to-understand manner.
