About SPACE Magazine
SPACE was first founded in November 1966, by one of Korea's most prominent architects and cultural activists, Kim Swoo Geun, with the mission to encompass architecture, urbanity, theatre, and the arts.
Celebrating its 51th anniversary in 2017, SPACE is a part of the proud heritage of Korean contemporary architecture, laying a legacy for recording and distributing prescient dialogues on Korean contemporary architecture, culture and the arts. As the cornerstone in domestic architectural, cultural and arts activities over the past 50 years, SPACE is the irreplaceable number one nationwide channel in architecture and culture publications, in both brand power and sales.
Listed in the Arts and Humanities Section of the Korean Citation Index, Thomson Scientific [Former ISI] from the January 2008 issue onward, SPACE will spring forth to all corners of the world as a specialist culture & arts monthly.
