modeled after get-ggac (columnar basalt pillars), which are commonly seen along the sea shore, ‘ggac jip’ features multiple different levels and angles. there are three types available in 14 forms with four sizes, which form tiny little village, called ʻmarket walkʼ. another 96 units are located near the jeju ocean. along the street that maintains the original topographical features of the site, the arrangement of edifices is based on a grape vine-like layout, traditional to the island.
