Taejon, South Korea | High Rise
Role on Project
- Lead Designer | Ben Kim Suzuki
The concept of the tower originates from a magnolia, which is the official flower of the city. The building was designed to fit into the natural, flowering environment of the downtown district. Taejon has a vey wide promenade that is all natural and beautiful. This design takes that into consideration and creates a humane quality. With it’s circuit-board exterior on the lower levels, the building also is a blend of ideas, shifting from utilitarian to conceptual - emphasizing function, structure and aesthetic value.
