08 SEOUL THAT’S EN­TER­TAIN­MENT

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

Par­adise City is a 9800-square me­tre en­ter­tain­ment plaza which sits within a larger tourist hub, ten min­utes from Seoul’s In­cheon Air­port. De­signed by MVRDV in part­ner­ship with Gansam Ar­chi­tects, who were also re­spon­si­ble for the wider masterplan of the com­plex, it is due to be com­pleted in 2018. Par­adise City is com­posed of two sib­ling build­ings, the Sand­box and the Night­club. The con­crete mono­lithic forms have no vis­i­ble win­dows to the out­side world, con­ceal­ing an in­tro­verted shop­ping cen­tre and night­club, but both have glass floors which re­veal the inner work­ings of the site, along with its ex­its and en­trances.
