In 2021, the Foundry Seoul gallery and flagship Gucci store opened within one building located in Hannam-dong, one of Seoul's most lively districts. Foundry Seoul is an extension of the world-famous Pace Galley, while the Italian fashion brand's "Gucci Gaok" is the second flagship store in Seoul. Together, the two spaces act as an intersection between art and fashion, providing visitors with a range of experiences.
