Junglim Foundation is dedicated to fostering the growth and broadening the reach of architectural culture.


As a facilitator and hub for architectural culture, spanning a wide range of areas including media, publishing, research, and education, we collaborate with various partners to continue our projects. Through forums and Architecture Newspaper, we discuss and document the thoughts and practices of contemporary architecture. Junglim Architecture Award for Students and Off-Architecture Department explore the broad spectrum of architecture as a foundation for both research and academic pursuits. Architecture School operates a variety of educational programs under the motto of “education through architecture,” making architecture accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Through our varied projects, we contribute to shaping the discourse in architecture, ensuring the socio-cultural aspects of architecture are embedded in society.


Junglim Foundation is open to collaboration and welcomes cooperation. Feel free to ask any questions about us. We will respond promptly to inquiries and suggestions.
