Success from Reality
The Architectural Engineering Branch of the State Academy of Sciences has rendered great service to the development of the country’s architectural engineering since its inauguration. It has solved many technological problems related to cooling and heating system, illumination, lighting, acoustics and building materials and construction.
More recently it has studied and introduced building materials and parts in apartment buildings and public establishments like the People’s Theatre, the Munsu Water Park, the Okryu Children’s Hospital, the Ryugyong Dental Hospital and the Mirim Riding Club, and parks and recreation grounds—which are all suited to the liking of the Korean people and the modern aesthetic taste. All of their ideas and conceptions were born in the field.
Over a decade ago the branch academy launched a campaign of all the researchers selecting some companies in their research sector and solving their problems on the spot while conducting the research of building materials and construction methods commensurate with the needs of the current century and making effective use of domestic raw and other materials.
