Naenara - Pyongyang University of Architecture is training talented designers and technical personnel while putting greater emphasis on developing construction science and technology in leaps and bounds so as to make the country’s architecture catch up with world standard.
It has competent teachers and researchers, who are chosen as members of designing teams for architectural structures to be built across the country. Involved in the designing projects are postgraduate and other students with substantial ability as well. The projects provide opportunities for them to develop their creative abilities.
The designing team of the university rendered remarkable services to glorifying the year Juche 102 (2013) as the significant year heralding a golden age in construction. Between April and May it presented scores of architectural designs including the formation plans for several gymnasiums to be reconstructed in the sports village on Chongchun Street.
The university’s researchers achieved many successes in scientific and technological study. Among them is the method of masonry on three-dimensional curved surface of the red flag of the monument, which was highly appreciated at the 12th national invention and new technology exhibition and won the prize and medal awarded to the best inventors by the World Intellectual Property Organization.
Full of ambition of beating the world in the field of architectural design, the university teachers and researchers created distinctive designs and formation plans for the structures to be built or reconstructed. In Juche 103 (2014) they completed designs of the buildings for comprehensive service facilities to be erected in the Wisong Scientists Dwelling District, those of the Korean Revolution Museum, the livestock farming base in the Sepho area, Central Zoo, Pyongyang Folk Park, Mangyongdae Schoolchildren’s Palace, May Day Stadium and other structures. And they developed multifunctional finishing materials by relying on domestic resources, as well as the computer-controlled vibration tester of structures.
Last year, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea, they greatly contributed to the construction of the Pyongyang Municipal Mushroom Farm and Jangchon Vegetable Cooperative Farm in Sadong District, Pyongyang, and carried out in good time huge tasks of designing indoor and outdoor exhibits in ten exhibition halls at the Sci-Tech Complex, the terminal at Pyongyang International Airport, Wonsan Baby Home and Wonsan Orphanage, Pyongyang Corn-processing Factory and other architectural structures representative of the present era.
All the university staff are making selfless efforts to accelerate the sci-tech development of the country, fully aware of their honourable mission of being the advance group in the building of a civilized socialist nation.
