New coming – Daegu Gosan Library

One more public library will come. Daegu Gosan Library had ground-breaking ceremony on 28th of February, 2014. The design of this library was born to ‘Daegu Gosan Public Library International Contest’ result. This contest was part of 2012 Daegu Architectural Culture Biennale and the winner was Gorka Blas, Spanish architect.


In consideration of the place of the library is surrounded by market, the first floor has open view. This plan has the purpose that citizens and kids can easily access to the library and build an active relationship. I am expecting the unique and friendly library will open soon.
