i don't know what it is, but not only seoul, but also other cities in south korea keep proposing amazing buildings that never end well just remember the incheon twins, those were amazing then height reduced and then cancelled altogether.

No kidding when I first came here almost 5 years ago I remember people arguing that we shouldn't get our hopes too high, cause it's Kore nothing really big is getting build here. And I was overoptimistic then. Now 5 years later we have at least two towers u/c but from the incheon example we should know everything still can happen.

Poor Seoul ;/

http://www.dezeen.com/2012/05/18/sli...ness-district/

Just read some of the comments:

Quote:
what a horrible composition of desperate forms. what we call in the business a cluster-f***
Quote:
The individual buildings are awful. Put together, the whole composition manages to be disgusting. The only thing that could be worse is if Daniel Libeskind had designed the individual buildings as well as the master plan.
Quote:
you guys are really out of mind.............................
Quote:
I see all of these "starchitects" were able to lower themselves to the shallow standards of Libeskind's abysmal master plan. Sad. Very sad.
Quote:
It's a shame!!! I was born in Yongsan... I hate all of these...
Quote:
This is a bad first year student's idea of master planning. Libeskind, has no professional qualification in Urban Planning. And his bizzarre ego does not compensate from his obvious lack of talent. Like they say, "When you hire a clown , you can only expect a joke."

Some of them look good, some of them look bad. I have mixed views about this complex, but I agree with one thing, if Libeskind would design the towers himself, it would be far, far worse

This being just a master plan lacks diversity but still as a whole is much better product than what we are getting. Especially the landmark tower looks better.

If they removed the middle bulge I would like the towers better.

But seriously, why aren't there anymore square twin buildings being built?

Shitty new design. It will be the worst looking cluster on the planet.

@ inno4321, Are you Korean?

I quite like the one by Dominique Perrault and he already has a building in Seoul and it's good. I guess this time he didn't kill the city either. The proposal by Murphy/Jahn is ok. The project from MVRDV is not half as good as their competition entry for the Shenzhen Guosen Tower. I expected a bit more from Renzo Piano too.

I think you have to be willing to evaluate this development for what it is: a post-modernist architecture fair. It's abundantly clear that none of the designers communicated with one another on this project, and thus what we have is a sort of what's-happening in architecture now. The result is a totally discontiguous, disjointed, and mismatched set of buildings. I'd be much happier seeing any of the older designs go up.

The only way I can find to appreciate it, especially given the mediocre quality of many of the designs, is basically as a giant explosion of awesomeness in the middle of Seoul, something which makes no sense at all and is frankly a bit abrasive, but which presents enough of a sensory overload that maybe it works anyway.

Maybe. I love Seoul, but I'm still very much so on the fence about this.

You have to forgive him. He has this thing called taste you know


If there is anything to add I think I partially agree with aquaticko's opinion. This may be one of these hated projects than in real life may be quite awesome to experience. And I am talking about being INSIDE the district, living there or spending time. With all those crazy buildings with skygardens high in the clouds it may be great social place to visit. And all that is great, BUT there is no doubt the skyline made by these crazy unrelated one to an another buildings will be quite vulgar and unpleasing to put it mildly. Shanghai has some of this chaos factor which I don't like, moscow have even more of this making it's skyline one of the worst imo. And this will go to the extreme.
