Completed in 1958, Konkuk University’s former library (now the Konkuk Language Institute) is one of the earliest projects of Kim Joong-up (1922–1988), one of Korea’s greatest post-war architects.

A student of Le Corbusier, Kim was one of the fathers of Korean modernism. His works, including this one, often reveal a very Corbu-esque flair.
