Summary: The National Library of Korea is holding an International Design Competition for the National Library of Korea Data Preservation Center for 90 days beginning on April 29th.
Description: The project is an adaptive re-use of the International Broadcasting Center (IBC), built for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics and now idle, to Nearly Zero Energy Standards and will be the first National Data Preservation Center in Korea.
Of all post-Olympic adaptively re-used buildings, the scale of this project is unprecedented and is expected to set an important standard for Korea’s 2050 carbon-neutral goal.
This International Design Competition is open to all architects; however, foreign architects must establish a local joint-venture office.
