Tower Infinity The Invisible Skyscraper
Probably you may have seen some popular so-called magic shows on television in which magicians disappear elephants, vehicles and structures in front of viewers and paid audience. But, interestingly in South Korea, the GDS architects decided to build Tower Infinity, a skyscraper which can disappear anytime by use of technology instead of any incantations.
According to GDS architects, rather to create just another tallest building we decided to build a glass made invisible structure. Optical cameras and LED's will play the major role to make Tower Infinity invisible. By the use of LED's lights and optical cameras with specific positions, they will create a reflex on the external surface of Tower Infinity to blend it according to surroundings.
The Tower Infinity is solely designed for enjoyment purpose and will include amusement park features water slides, orchards, roller coaster, etc., marriage halls, restaurants, clubs, gymnasium, and the world's second highest observation deck on height of 392 meters from the ground.
According to the source the Tower Infinity will have a height of 450 meters, means it will come parallel to the China's Zifeng Tower a 10th tallest building in the world. Dangerously, the invisible Tower Infinity will be located near to Incheon airport. But its creators reject these dangers and said this iconic landmark will showcase South Korea's emerging and innovative technology as first impression for tourists especially coming from Incheon airport.
The details about expected costs and finish date for Tower Infinity have not released yet.
