KNN Media Center will be the new home of the Korea News Network and will contain broadcast studios, office space, retail outlets, and a Teddy Bear Museum. DRDS wanted to design a building that embodied the virtue and youthful energy depicted in KNN's vast experience of reporting.
The new broadcasting headquarters will serve as a distinct landmark that connects with surrounding public amenities and creates a dynamic backdrop to Centum City's seaport. The elegant tower and sweeping base seek to establish a unique urban experience that will impact the future development of Centum City. The project was designed in collaboration with Ilshin Architecture and Engineering and is due to open in 2012.
