Introduction to the Northeast Asia Site
The Korean nation falls within the geographic sector called Northeast Asia which includes China, Japan, Taiwan, Mongolia, and others. A total of 22,000 square metres of land for Northeast Asian pavilions has been secured in the International Zone.
An agreement has been reached to establish common cultural centres and hostels in this area such as North and South Korea, Japan, China, and Taiwan.
The Korean Pavilion was the first to receive approval for its site in 2016; the site area for the Korean Cultural Exhibition Hall, performance hall, hostel, and others covers 1025 m2.
In 2017, the site for the Taiwan Cultural Center was approved, and following this, Japan and China also established plans for construction.
As a joint project of the Northeast Asia Pavilion, we plan to plant bamboo from each country to create a bamboo forest on the site.
A Place for Peace
As a place that expresses the spirit and beauty of Korean traditions, expressive of the nation’s soul, culture, education, and agriculture, as well as an ecologically integrated life in harmony with nature that contributes to it, the Korean Pavilion wants to create a place for peaceful interaction and cooperation.
Auroville is made up of about 130 communities, and hundreds of creative projects in agriculture, economy, ecology, science, etc. are being carried out every year with volunteers, college students and students from alternative schools from all over the world, and the Korean Pavilion serves as a practical bridge between Auroville and the Korean Peninsula.
