Office Tower With Undulating Glass Façade in Seoul

waving building01 Office Tower With Undulating Glass Façade in Seoul

GT Tower East is an impressive contemporary office tower designed by the Dutch architectural firm ArchitectenConsort and located in Seoul, South Korea. With an original undulating glass façade, the building is said to bring a fascinating change to the angular architecture of the Korean capital and mirror the surrounding urban landscape. Here are some further details about the 130-meter high tower from the architects: “Within its gross 54,000 m2 of floor space, GT Tower East fulfills a range of purposes. In addition to functional office spaces, there is room for commercial and cultural uses, as well as parking. We achieved the high adaptive capacity of GT Tower East by placing the compact core at the heart of the floor plan and using a carefully thought-out column structure. These measures ensure that the facade remains entirely unencumbered, and large floor spaces are created that allow the building to accommodate a variety of uses in the future. 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.” In the end, we would like to know your opinion on this architecture approach.

    Certainly makes you do a double-take. I’d love to see this one in real life, but I don’t have any trips to South Korea planned at the moment. :-)
