Description


Seoul, South-Korea, 2003–2004 The Galleria Department Store project had two main goals. The first was a new façade that projects a lively, ever changing surface. In total 4330 glass discs are mounted on the existing concrete skin of the building. The glass discs include special dicroic foil generating a mother-of-pearl effect during the day, whilst during the night each glass disc is lit by LED lights which are able to be programmed to create a multitude of effects. The second goal was the renovation of the interior. UNStudio
