In recent years cities and architectural studios have struggled to build the tallest or largest buildings. However, lately it seems that the trend of making constructions that we could call rare or different is growing. This is precisely what the Government of South Korea intends to do, which has approved the construction of the world's first “invisible” tower: the Tower Infinity.
This building, designed by the American studio GDS ArchitectsIt will be glass-clad and 450 meters high, making it the sixth tallest tower in the world, and will be located in the Yongsan International Business District, near Incheon Airport. But, apart from glass, what is it that will make it invisible?
Everything projected in real time
The secret of Tower Infinity's invisibility is that everything that happens behind the building will be projected in real time on the front of the building using a system of cameras and state-of-the-art LED screens, which will allow the glass to disappear from the construction in some way. On the other hand, and as they explain from GDS, the special lighting system will make the shapes of the building appear to blur in the environment.
Adjusted, rotated and stitched images
It is also known that images will be adjusted, rotated and stitched together to create an image panorama of a piece that appears in the rows of LED screens to create the illusion of invisibility.
The date on which it will be completed is not yet known, but the architects already have free access for its construction. We are dying to know what the end result is. We will show you in Hard Hobbit To Break as soon as it is built!
