Out With the Old, In With the New

Workers take down an old army barrack
in the shadow of the new KIST laboratories.

The KIST campus is large and sprawling; there are but ten or so buildings on about 75 acres. There is room for many more buildings, and that is the plan.   The land used to be the main government army base, and there are still dilapidated barracks dotted about the land.  There has been slow, systematic tearing down of these buildings.  Work crews work seven days a week to take down each wall with sledgehammers and carry the bricks away in wheelbarrows.

  1. Adrienne,

    The buildings are beautiful! I had no idea you were in such a swingin' place. I'll be interested to hear more about the teaching but also about what you're eating, what the social life is like, how's the weather and etc. I'm very happy that The Doctor is getting in touch with his roots ...
