Han River Art Island, Seoul, Korea

The proposed Art Complex, the newest part of Seoul's grand plan to reinvigorate the Han River.  The winning design was proposed by the architecture group Designcamp moonpark and is modeled after the movement of traditional Korean dancers.

According to the Architectural Review, the complex will house "a 1,900-seat symphony hall, a 1,500-seat opera house and a performance hall with a capacity to accommodate 300 people."
Currently, an 8-lane highway bisects the future site, which is located on Nodeul Island.  The proposed design works around the existing traffic:  "The eight-storey building will create a bridge over the motorway and incorporate landscaped parks. The roof will be punctuated by a series of diamond-shape roof lights and photovoltaic cells."
