With two underground floors and four floors above the ground, the National Library of Korea, Sejong represents the city’s cultural center which is frequently visited by families since its foundation in 2013. It has the necessary facilities including a library, reading rooms, lecture hall and cafeteria, and provides various educational programs and lectures.
The design of the National Library of Korea, Sejong, is a main attraction. The rooftop has the appearance of a book placed upside down, and as though flipping through the pages of a book passes data from folder to folder. This design has the meaning of accepting the digital concept with the analogue foundation along with humanistic emotions in an effort to make it an expressive library.
