SEOUL FLOATING ISLANDS
The “Bud” is the Urban Entertainment Center offering IT cafes, 3D theaters, interactive games and exhibition space. The “Blossom” offers visitors restaurants, performance and entertainment venues and a cultural exhibit space. The “Bud” and “Blossom” feature overlapping curtain walls that blur the interior and exterior spaces and blend the Han River into the building’s interior. The “Seed” contains a natural environment with a grass beach, marina, club house and floating pods of flora that illuminate the night with the appearance of flickering candle lights. The roof of the club house in “Seed” contains arrays of photovoltaic cells to help provide power to the island. Civic plaza and promenade by day, and high-tech stage and backdrop by night, Seoul Floating Islands is the first constructed Han River Renaissance project, aiming to become a world-class destination for tourists and locals alike.
