Busan Architecture Festival
“We will strive to create an architectural culture that aims for
the enhancement of architecture, city environment and public interest of Busan.”
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the homepage of Busan Architecture Festival.
Architecture is another version of culture, in which we find sincereness oriented towards the people who inhabit the space. Authentic culture is created when architecture is filled with sincere hearts.
BAF was born out of such sincere hearts. In 2001, for the first time in Korea, BAF took its first significant step towards the enhancement of architectural culture.
Through design competitions and the projects of citizens housing empowerment along with special exhibitions, academic conferences and lectures, and citizen involvement events, BAF has contributed to nurturing Busan not only as a marine city but as an architectural culture city receiving international attention.
The Organizing Committee of BAF is constantly working to further the architectural culture of Busan. I believe that your increased interest and involvement in BAF will make our efforts worthwhile and lead to meaningful achievements.
