The KNN Media Center will be the new headquarters of Korea News Network in Busan, South Korea. Designed by Californian architects DRDS in collaboration with Ilshin Architecture and Engineering, the KNN Media Center is due to open in 2012, at which point it will be home to broadcast studios, retail outlets and, oddly, a teddy bear museum.
In terms of aesthetics, the KNN Media Center features an exterior with a transparent geometric design. According to the architects, "The project’s design explores the streaming nature of broadcast as a fresh and progressive example of informed media reporting. The building presents soft surface geometry at its base allowing visitors to subtly transition between external and internal public programs."
