The cladding looks different from different angles. This photo doesn't show it at its best.

There are a lot of temporary white coverings in the windows which mess up the look.

It takes on a more orange appearance during sunrise and sunset.

Seoul has a lot of problem&noisy&dirty&fine dust from china.
But concern safety As I'm Seoulites 100% guarantee you. one of top safest city. I never experienced any single crime in my life.(except heard two thief incident from neighborhood)


"Seoul has as twice as high murder rate?"
these are Youtubers/Londoners, they have been living in both city But in video they didn't mention about any "seoul's terrible safety or murder/crime issue" specially at 20:40

BTW this is off topic so I'm quit

London doesn't have 10,000 artillery pieces aimed at it 24/7 with a crazy little fat man waiting to push the button.

So who's responsible for the glass towers causing social engineering these days?

I checked it out yesterday and it's definitely that it's not completely finished that's throwing it off. On the while I think it's pretty good; could have been better but the proportions and height are right for the location.

Not necessarily. While brutalism was certainly used as an effective tool by the communists, fascists also had a fair share of it symbolizing their reign, like in Spain and Greece. I'm not a fan of brutalism, but Sampson House as IBM's former U.K. headquarters, and bastion of modernity and capitalism from a bygone era has more merit than the flawed crap replacing it.

If there's any social engineering here, it's replacing a dignified clean-shaven blue suit and tie, with a cuck beard and open shirt with no tie. I mean, looking at crap like Nova Victoria, S2 Handyside, and Manhattan Loft Gardens, I see a big middle finger to any tradition or rules in architecture, classical or modern.

Well, I don't know, maybe it ends up looking better than I think it will, but I was really hyped for this building, the renders looked amazing, and when the cladding started to go up, I realised it won't look as near as spectacular.

Yes Seoul is crazy safe when it comes to small crimes. People leave their laptop and everything unattended in a cafe while they get somewhere else for dinner for 2 hours. I've seen crews leaving professional filming equipment on the sidewalk overnight, covered by just a simple sheet of plastic to protect against any dust. But murder and sexual assault wise, it's not that safe. There has been some pretty disturbing murder cases as well.

No, it has 10,000 mental pieces aimed at you 24/7 with a knife in their hands. People who say London is safe have never been anywhere outside London.

I've been to dozen places and lived in dozen places, London is safe! I have more troubles in China (which supposed to be mega safe) than in London. Korea is not that safe too, actually. Japan yes. UAE is not safe either, they cover bad news here, as much as they can.

To end this discussion, out of top 10 most visited places, London is 2nd safest place behind Singapore:

What else do you want?

Still, you have 60% more chances of being killed in Seoul than in London. That sums all up.
