SPACE (Publisher: Lee Sang-leem), Korea’s first comprehensive art journal, was launched in 1966. In 2009, the journal marks its 43rd year and in July its 500th issue will be published. SPACE has become recognized as a journal that features intellectual discussions between architects, both domestically and internationally, by focusing on the field of architecture since the mid-1990s. With architecture as the center, the journal also covers the areas of art, design, and interiors for an overview of the broader aspects of the design field. Since 2005, it has serialized interviews with renowned architects as a retrospective on the importance of the 20th century. In 2006, SPACE expanded its reach beyond Korea to research and explore other important Asian cities. In 2007, it tried something that was truly revolutionary by removing advertising entirely, and thus opening new horizons as a professional journal. In 2008, it researched fast changing African cities that raised various controversial issues.

Starting with the January issue of 2008, SPACE has been registered in the art and humanities index of Thomson Reuters which evaluates and selects academic journals in America. This is unprecedented, as SPACE is the first periodical in a magazine from Korea to be included in the Thomson Reuters index. Presently 23 architectural journals in the world have been registered. SPACE as an architecture journal continuously strives to improve its quality and capabilities and to convey the architects' creative works through special editions. SPACE publishes three special editions per year. Each edition deals with insightful discussions on architecture.
