Library South Korea

Reforming ideas pragmatically, Mahendra Mohan’s (MARS Architects) design proposal for the Gwangju Library competition is a flawless amalgamation of accentuated curves the site offers and the conception of “Knowledge triangle”. The basic perception of design evolves out of the ideas of a conceptual triangle consisting of research, education and innovation which forms the paradigm of knowledge based society.
