Seoul Light Digital Media City Tower in Seoul, Korea, combines technology and sustainability strategies to create a new model of supertall building design. A large, central atrium spans vertically through the hotel, residential, and observation deck areas to allow for penetration of natural light and air throughout the building. Air rises through the atrium in a natural “stack effect” and drives wind turbines at the crown of the tower. Interior gardens act as “lungs” for the tower, providing air circulation and filtration for the varied functions.
