  • Jong Soung Kimm’s roots are in Korea, but his formative years were spent in Chicago, as a student at the Illinois Institute of Technology and later in the offi ce of Mies van der Rohe. From 1961 to 1972 – Mies’s fi nal and most prolifi c years – Kimm worked on the older architect’s iconic last projects like the meticulously crafted Brown Wing of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Toronto-Dominion Centre. In 1978, Kimm returned to Seoul, opening his own architectural design consultancy, SAC International. For the past 40 years, Kimm’s buildings – such as the Weightlifting Gymnasium for the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the Woo Yang Museum of Contemporary Art in Kyongju – have evinced both his admiration for Mies and a Korean sensibility.
