The world’s first invisible skyscraper in South Korea

Work is about to begin for something that looks like it came out of a Bond movie. Designed by architectural firm GDS Architects, the 450-meter tall Tower Infinity in South Korea will be the world’s first invisible skyscraper. Using state-of-the-art cameras and LED lighting, the edifice can create a ‘reflective skin’ that will mimic the background behind it rendering it invisible.

It will be used for entertainment and leisure purposes and will have a 4D theatre, restaurants, a water park, a roller coaster, and the 3rd highest observation deck in the world. Located in the Yongsan International Business District, it’s in close vicinity to the airport. But wait, if it’s invisible… and the planes can’t see it… won’t they… you know… um… never mind.
