The bank’s financial tower epitomized the capital accumulation and advanced technologies when it was built in the 1970s and 1980s, while the main head office which was designed by Junglim Architecture in 1978 is considered a pioneering project together with Industrial Bank of Korea’s main head office that established the foundation of the country’s modern bank architecture.

The project was designed by an unusual team that is composed of the original architect of Daegu Bank’s first head office and junior designers some 50 years younger than the lead architect in an attempt to rewrite the history of bank architecture. The designers intended to convey the corporate spirit and vision of Daegu Bank. The building will rise as the Bank’s new headquarters that represents the local community and promotes shared growth with it, thereby suggesting a new paradigm in the design of financial buildings.
