Art gallery combined with library! Art Library of Uijeongbu

Uijeongbu Art Library, a perfect place for a rainy day date! with aesthetically pleasing interior design and natural scenery out of the window

There is a one-of-a-kind library in Gyeonggi Province's Uijeongbu City called Art Library of Uijeongbu. Art Library of Uijeongbu, which won the 2020 Korean Architecture Award's Grand Prize, is a cultural complex that combines an art gallery with a library. This three-story building is an open space that is almost wall-less; the ground floor is an atrium with the second and third floors serving as mezzanines.

The interior is definitely an instant eye-catcher! The view you can see through the big glass window is as beautiful as a piece of art. "Art Ground" on the first floor features domestic and foreign art materials and periodicals covering subjects from architecture and art to crafts, painting, fashion, design and photography. Make sure to check out David Hockney: A Bigger Book on display! It is a captivating place as you can check out books you cannot find easily in ordinary libraries.

The stairs leading to the second floor give you a panoramic bird's eye view of the first floor atrium. The large windows and high ceilings provide a wide open view so that visitors don't feel confined. Visitors can find general materials along with children’s books on the second floor, and there is a corner for various magazines and a curation corner with an array of books that match the theme of the librarian’s collection every month. Children can even play with cute dolls in the children’s book corner.

"Multi Ground" on the third floor is also an open studio space for new up-and-coming artists. Uijeongbu selects two new artists with potential through an open call twice a year, and those selected can use the studio space for six months of residency. The studio is an exclusive space for artists, but visitors can view artists’ works through the glass window and even sign up to participate in their programs.

There is also a donor collection where you can find various donated books. The donor collection comprises art books generously donated by the Honolulu Museum of Art (HoMA). HoMA's donation couldn't have arrived at a less opportune moment; Art Library of Uijeongbu opened just as HoMA was running out of storage space, and HoMA donated over 2,000 art-related materials including books in English that cannot be easily found domestically.

Lastly, there is a cafe on the third floor. As a cultural complex, the library invites visitors to sit freely with a drink in hand while reading books, and looking at the scenery around the library to freshen their minds.
