The Vision of a US City, Through the Eyes of a Korean-Born Architect

Minkyu Whang moved from Korea to Aurora at the age of 13. Not knowing any English, he adapted to a new city and a new language. Soon after, he discovered what he truly wanted to do for the rest of his life — create, build, and change the landscape of the world around him as an architect. Minkyu graduated college in Chicago and began designing multimillion-dollar projects in Korea, but he longed to return to Aurora, where he knew he could create lasting change. He now calls Aurora home — the city where he discovered his dream as a young man.
