Architectural Art That Is Shaped Like a Diamond

Most people will believe that diamonds are exclusive to the most high-end jewellery designs, but apparently they’d be mistaken! This architectural art building in Seoul mixes the gem-like shapes into its already contemporary design. A complete architectural art sculpture has arrived in the developing city of Gwanggyo located about 25 kilometres south of Seoul, a high-end Korean department store stands out amongst grey office buildings and other concrete structures.

A beautiful modern architecture gem ready to be cracked when you step foot inside of this building. Designed by OMA/Chris van Duijn, the Galleria shopping centre features a mosaic facade of neutral-toned stones cut into exact triangles. A series of geometric, opal windows offer those passing through the dome-like hallways a look at the burgeoning city’s activities.

‘With a public loop deliberately designed for cultural offerings, galleria in gwanggyo is a place where visitors engage with architecture and culture as they shop. They leave with a unique retail experience blended with pleasant surprises after each visit.’

This architectural art stands out in the middle of so many standard and city-like buildings. OMA said in a release that the building is inspired in part by the nearby Suwon Gwanggyo Lake Park, an urban green space that surrounds a small body of water. Complete with a rooftop garden, the structure has designated space for consumers to shop and for cultural activities that are open to the public.

In addition to breaking up the opacity of the large stone volume, the multifaceted glazing also serves as a public route that connects the sidewalk to a roof garden, which includes both retail and cultural activities.

‘the public loop entwines gwanggyo and the galleria by making visible and tangible the activities of shopping typically hidden from the city’.
