The 3rd Cultural Festival to Save Casa del Agua takes place at the Jeju Venture Maru Building Plaza, near Jeju City Hall, on Friday, Dec. 28. The Casa del Agua, meaning “the house of water,” was designed by prominent Mexican architect, Ricardo Legorreta, and it is one of only two in Asia. It continues to be threatened with demolition and this cultural event aims to raise awareness of this threat by bringing together supporters and activists.

Events begin with a visit to Casa del Agua itself at 11 a.m. in Jungmun, Seogwipo City, followed by a series of events at the Jeju Venture Maru Building, Jeju City. The afternoon schedule begins with the “How can we save Casa del Agua?” seminar, between 3-5 p.m. in the 10th floor Seminar Room, Jeju Venture Maru Building.
The evening schedule kicks off at 5 p.m. at the Jeju Venture Maru Building Plaza, with a series of musical performances by artists from Jeju and the mainland.
