Block H is the latest skyscraper designed for Seoul’s Yongsan International Business district. Block H was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, and measures an impressive 1,263 feet. The building will be mixed use, featuring residences and dining.

Block H will be split into three wings, with rooftop gardens appearing as the tower increases in size. The biggest attraction of the skyscraper, aside from the rooftop gardens, is its pool. The pool appears about two-thirds of the way up Block H, and juts out precariously over the edge.

This skyscraper is just one of many (15 to be exact) planned for the Yongsan International Business district. KPF’s design is sure to stand out, and will more than likely be a big attraction once construction on the district is complete. Stats for Sky-High Urban Gardens Trending: Older & Chilly
