Gwangju City Library

The Sangmu district where the project site is located is an important space node in the core area of the new town after Gwangju's urbanising towards the west. The site is located at the end of the urban space. It is a vital end point of a sequence of urban public spaces such as 518 Liberty Park and the Energy Park. It also acts as a necessary link between the urban landscape system and the Gwangju River on the north side. At the same time, the library, as an important public service facility, will be opened to the public along with other surrounding cultural facilities such as the Concert Hall.
