Introduction to Citizens Hall

Citizens Hall, situated on the 1st and 2nd basement levels of Seoul City Hall, serves as a Citizens' lifestyle courtyard where citizens can create and share together. The hall is designed according to the principles of void' (emptiness) and flexibility in such a way as to accommodate various types of citizen-oriented activities such as discussions, exhibitions, performances, lectures, and play programs. Its Chinese name uses cheong (聽) meaning 'listening', rather than cheong (聽), meaning government office to express the idea of a courtyard where citizens' voices are heard and where ideas and opinions are shared between citizens.

B-I Introduction

The brand identity (BI) of Citizens Hall uses an ‘ear' as its motif to express the hall's role as a venue of listening and communication. The sky-blue color, which symbolizes hope and truth, is used to express ‘the genuineness of the hall' which listens to the hopes of citizens.
