Seoul’s Wavy Skyscraper (9 pics)


Dutch firm ArchitectenConsort just completed a wavy new skyscraper that brings a fascinating change to the cityscape of Seoul, South Korea. The undulating glass facade of GT Tower East makes it look different from every angle. The 427 foot (130 meter) high-rise stands out even further because it appears to drop down below street level.

Many sustainability measures were integrated into the design, including a well-insulated facade, the installation of solar panels for generating power, and a lot of natural light and ventilation to create a pleasant working environment.
