The Lotte World Tower
June 28, 2017
Seoul, South Korea
The Kohn Pederson Fox designed Lotte World Tower in Seoul, South Korea is a 555-meter-tall monument to the capital city’s skyline.
"Our design melds a modern aesthetic with forms inspired by the historic Korean arts of ceramics, porcelain, and calligraphy. The tower's uninterrupted curvature and gentle tapered form is reflective of Korean artistry. The seam that runs from top to bottom of the structure gestures toward the old center of the city." -KPF
