The Tower Infinity in South Korea will be the world’s first skyscraper that, for a few hours a day, modestly provides an unobstructed view of the sky behind it. The design, from GDS Architects (picked in an international competition in 2008), will use a combination of LED technology and 18 weatherproof HD cameras affixed to the facade to give the appearance that the building is invisible from certain vantage points. The lead architect was quick to assure the public that the building will remain visible to birds and planes. The 450-m tower will house an entertainment complex, including the world’s third highest observation deck, and is due to be completed in three to four years.
