The undulating glass GT Tower East office building, designed by Dutch firm ArchitectenConsort, stands out amongst the angular architecture of Seoul, South Korea. The undulating glass structure is impressive because of its scale: it comes in at 130 metres-high (or just over 425 feet).

The undulating glass facade creates the optic illusion of movement as pedestrians walk by. The ArchitectenConsort building also fosters the illusion that it's coming out of the soil and is stretching towards the sky, like a bean stock.

The ArchitectenConsort collective was able to create a multi-functional building designed for many different purposes. The undulating glass GT Tower East doesn't just look great, but is also quite environmentally friendly, with a well-insulated facade and solar panels to generate power.
