Artist Statement:


    Lotte Super Tower is a super-tall, mixed-use building including retail, offices, hotel, and an observation deck in southeastern Seoul. The tower’s design, in which the building transforms smoothly from a square base to a circle at 1,640 feet (555 meters), is inspired by an organizational strategy based on an ancient Korean observatory.
