Created by LA architects DRDS for the good people of Hwaseong, Korea is the Hyundai-Samsung Consortium. Not only does the Hyundai-Samsung Consortium come with a sleek design, it also features a perforated metal skin with various sized openings.

Overall, from the photos, it appears as though this building has a scaly snake skin. Projected to be open in 2010, the Hyundai-Samsung Consortium will boast a 35,000 seat soccer stadium and include a 5,000 seat arena and 2,000 seat practice field. Stats for Snakeskin Stadiums Trending: Older & Mild
