In line with the 2018 Winter Olympics, Seoul-based architects are creating this seaside PyeongChang Resort.

Shaped like the iconic figure-eight symbol, this resort will be based in PyeongChang, South Korea within five kilometers of the Olympic stadiums. The hotel will host 946 rooms, a suspended swimming pool and traditional Korean homes on the ground level. Spread across 29,493 square meters of land, the unique hotel form was chosen due to the shape's maximization of space while still providing guests with a panoramic view of the stunning seaside location. The figure-eight shape is also an inspiration from the organisms living deep under the sea.

After the 2018 Winter Olympics, the PyeongChang Resort hopes to host meetings and conventions.
