RRP reaches for the sky in Korea

  • Comment
The Richard Rogers Partnership has been appointed to design Seoul's tallest towers.

The two 270m-tall glass skyscrapers will become the showpiece of a £853 million mixed-use retail, hotel and office development on Yeouido Island - nicknamed the 'Manhattan' of the South Korean capital.

Designed for Skylan Properties Korea, the Parc1 project will revolve around a six-storey glass block that will house more than 400 shops.

'I look forward to adding beautiful buildings full of vitality to this magnificent city,' said Rogers.

'They will be light and transparent with a strong sense of place and character - a place for people to meet, shop and work.'

Work is scheduled to start on site early next year and is expected to finish in 2010.
