Architecture: Breeze by Riken Yamamoto and Field Shop – Yongsan International Business District: “..a cluster of three towers for the R2 block of the emerging yongsan international business district in seoul, korea. three 47-storey tall buildings grow from a hilly landscape that encases the 7-storey podium. similar to fabric billowing in the wind, the curving facades respond to the geography of the adjacent han river and produce unrestricted vistas of the waterfront. their positioning in relation to each other supports cross views, intake of natural daylight and the effect of wind forces upon the structures..inset within the artificial topography, footprints emerge from the sloping rooftop park, starting wider and becoming more slender at the 20th floor of the building. officetel and shopping at the base are linked with the elevated green public plaza, forming a secondary ground level for activity. within the interior retail forum, 25 meter high spaces link the city side of the masterplan towards the river. lobbies and amenities catering to the residences and the units are positioned within the upper parts of the skyscrapers..”  Another dynamic mixed-use project for the Yongsan International Business District..
