CNU’s Hanok Design Training Center has produced thirty-five Hanok specialists.

The CNU Hanok Design Training Center in Gwangju and Jeonnam Regions (Director: Endowed Chair Professor Cheon Deuk-yeom) held a graduation ceremony for thirty-five graduates who completed the 2nd round of the training programs for Hanok building professionals (specialized programs for Hanok design) on December 7.

The graduates will be registered as professional Hanok designers and recommended to regional governments for various Hanok design projects.

The training program provided 184 hours of theory and practice courses eight hours per week (on Saturdays) from June to early December 2019. Professional architects and building engineers from the region participated in the program to upgrade their professional capabilities.

As a part of the curriculum, the CNU Hanok Design Training Center in Gwangju and Jeonnam Regions conducted volunteer activities with educational programs to the Kkumdarak Building School for teenagers to raise awareness on the traditional Hanok. The program also offered a special lecture series on the core structure of small-scale Hanok architecture (Professor Kim Young-min, Myungji University) not only to participants of the program but also to local architects and building engineers, who audited the lectures.
It is the second year for the CNU Hanok Design Training Center in Gwangju and Jeonnam to produce experts in Hanok design since it was selected as a training institution for Hanok specialists (Hanok design) by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport. The center also signed an agreement with Jeonnam Province and the Jeonnam Architecture Society last year to produce more than 30 Hanok design experts. Furthermore, the center will continuously offer classes for regular programs and additionally run an expert course for those who completed the regular courses.
