Now the golden age of construction is being unfolded in our country to provide our people with more civilized and happy living conditions.

Monumental edifices spring up like mushrooms everywhere in the country, adding to the happy laughter and pleasure of our people. This reality is closely associated with respected Comrade Kim Jong Un ’s concern for training architectural talents, visiting Pyongyang University of Architecture - the center for training Juche-type architectural talents and the base of building a civilized socialist country - and providing the university with guidelines for education.

On November 26, 2013, respected Comrade Kim Jong Un visited Pyongyang University of Architecture and said that it is important to provide the university with a good condition for education in order to train lots of talents who would be the vanguard in the building of a civilized socialist country.

He also said with warmth that should the work for training talents be likened to a tree, education is like the soil and educational condition the fertilizer, and that he would gladly place himself as fertilizer for the training of architectural talents.

His deep attention to the educational condition of the university can also be seen in the following comments of his: As the buildings are arranged with no particular axis within the campus, new buildings should definitely be built; he would now assume the position of honorary president of the university and also the responsibility of the construction project, and would support it accordingly.

That day, he also looked around the architectural designing room and gave meticulous instructions for training the students into competent architectural talents, personally inquiring into the students’ designing practice and giving guidance on their drawing practice.

Before leaving the university, he had a photo session with the university officials, saying that he would have a photo taken with them as he had just assumed the position of the honorary president of the university.

Honorary president of the university, this appellation reflects the noble intention of respected Comrade Kim Jong Un of making a rapid progress in the country’s architecture so that the sector would lead the global trend, thus glorifying our socialist fatherland and providing our people and posterity with all the blessings of the world.

Therefore, many foreign friends who visited our country highly appreciated the development of our architecture that is flourishing under the sagacious leadership of respected Comrade Kim Jong Un .

They say that Korea’s architecture is quite unique; Korean people, with Leader Kim Jong Un in high esteem, have built many edifices under his guidance for the past years, such as Okryu Children’s Hospital, Munsu Water Park, Mirim Riding Club and others.

Pyongyang University of Architecture upholds in high esteem respected Comrade Kim Jong Un as the honorary president of the university and is training a number of competent people to shoulder the architectural development of the country. It is also fulfilling its mission as the center of training Juche-type architectural talents and the base of building a civilized socialist country.
