08 SEOUL THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT
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.
