The World’s First ‘Invisible’ Skyscraper To Be Built In South Korea



Designed by architectural firm GDS Architects, the ‘Tower Infinity’ in South Korea will be the world’s first ‘invisible’ skyscraper.

Equipped with an “LED façade system with optical cameras”, the building can create a “reflective skin” to display the background behind it on its exterior—allowing it to blend in with the skyline.

With the height of 1,467-feet, the building will be used for “entertainment and leisure purposes”, and will include a “4D theater, restaurants, a water park, landscaped gardens, and the third-highest observation deck in the world”, Business Insider wrote.

“Instead of symbolizing prominence as another of the world’s tallest and best towers, our solution aims to provide the World’s first invisible tower, showcasing innovative Korean technology while encouraging a more Global narrative in the process,” said the company.

Architects of ‘Tower Infinity’ were recently granted construction permits to begin building the skyscraper on the outskirts of Seoul, near the city’s airport.
