Platoon cultural development was established in 2000 in berlin. It runs diverse culture and communication projects in cooperation with an international community of 6,500 creatives from all different professions. The sister-venue platoon kunsthalle seoul / south korea opened in 2009 and functions as the asian headquarters of platoon. Platoon Kunsthalle is not about entertainment. The program provides a communication platform for anybody interested in subcultural creative fields like street art, graphic design, fashion, video art, programming, music, club culture, political activism etc.

Platoon Kunsthalle is built of 33 iso cargo containers. as icons of a flexible architecture in a globalized culture, the stacked containers form a unique construction that can be rebuilt anywhere else any time. As platoon Kunsthalle is located in berlin/mitte as the confrontation of subculture with the close-by design houses, commercial galleries and brand stores creates a tension and interaction between the two worlds.

Platoon Kunsthalle provides showcases of underground artists, studio residencies and a fine selection of cutting-edge stage performances to introduce the energetic potential of subculture.

    “Area: 435 sqm”

    I think that is the area for each floor, not the total for the structure.
