Daejeon Landmark in Korea by François Blanciak Architect

As the culminating point of a larger planning scheme, the design for this landmark building proposes to link eighteen towers within a single inverted crown, which at once liberates the ground to enhance public space, and provides a large circular garden on its roof to act as a 360° observatory for the City of Daejeon. The liberation of the central space of the building at ground level allows its different programmatic elements (offices, apartments, hotel and museum) to share a naturally lit, circular, inside yet outside park. Structurally, the building is made of 6 independent elements that only connect in the upper circular floors.

The vertical circulation is ensured by these 6 cores, each distributing at once an office pillar and two housing stalactites. The lower prominent part of the housing stalactites is occupied by triplexes that are connected to the elevator cores by their respective upper floors, and therefore do not necessitate additional elevators for access. Once the plan of the building unifies into a continuous circle, the building turns into a hotel with rooms that offer panoramic views of the city, then into an 8-meter high circular gallery space that hosts a museum.
