Seoul New City Hall / iArc Architects

While this project has been extensively published on Archdaily, I’ve never had the urge to go there and see it for myself. On our way from Gyeongbokgung Palace to the N Seoul Tower we passed the New City Hall and took a few pictures. The contrast between the old City Hall building (now a library) and the new glass wave seems to be overwhelming. There have been better attempts to mix old and new. This is probably my least favorite building of the ones I have seen. Go see for yourself and make up your own mind.

Find the building on A Flâneur’s Map.
