(5) The ARC /Following the filming site of Running Man in Daegu, a tourist destination recommended by the < 2015 World Water Forum >


The last tourist destination recommended by the 2015 World Water Forum is The ARC, which also appeared in the famous variety TV program ‘Running Man’




The ARC that is an abbreviation of Architecture of River Culture and Artistry of River Culture is a complex cultural space where you can learn about four major rivers and waters. 


The ARC is designed by world-famous architect Hani Rashid.
It expresses wavelength of the moment stone skipping and the moment of fish jumping over the water. 




Also it has been selected for Excellence in Architecture Culture Award in 2014, South Korea completed building sector. 





The building has exhibition spaces and art galleries on the basement floor, a huge circle theater highlighting the theme of water on the first and second ground floors.


First basement level with white and the first and second ground floors, decorated in blue. 

Going up the building feels like getting into the water.







There are artworks around that make The ARC look more beautiful. 



At the observatory on the third floor of The ARC, you can look down the panoramic views of Nakdong river, Kumho river and Gangjeong Goryeongbo surrounding natural landscape. 




Also, you can see the night view after the sun has set, The ARC colorfully shining together with the wonderful night view of Nakdong River which makes you feel refreshed.




I strongly recommend you to go to The ARC to get relaxed and refreshment in breeze~!!
