Jongno Tower, Seoul, South Korea

Jongno Tower is located in Jongno(Bell Street) area in central Seoul, South Korea.

Jongno Tower is a 33-story office building. Its top floor is equipped with a restaurant and bar which is famous for its view of Jongno and other areas of Seoul.

The tower's distinctive enclosure, which features exposed steel girders and large scale aluminum louvers, is noteworthy for an innovative structural glass curtain wall system. The steel-bezel technique for joining sheets of glass makes possible a transparent facade whose weight is carried by vertical glass blades reinforced only by delicate stainless steel rods.

Architect : Rafael Viñoly
