The Gwangju Design Center revealed that the 2019 Gwangju Design Biennale, which opened on September 7th, ended yesterday. The total number of visitors was 310,000, and the daily maximum was 13,000. The number of visitors increased largely compared to 2017 and 2015 which was 270,000 and 107,000 respectively. Officials of the Gwangju Design Biennale said that the success of the exhibition was because it focused on the diverse roles that design can play to solve social problems in the future.
