Seouls' Invisible Skyscraper

As reported by Mashable, a new skyscraper will soon be a part of the skyline in Seoul, South Korea — but you may not be able to see it.

Architects behind the world's first invisible skyscraper have been granted a permit to begin construction on the building, which has been given the name "Tower Infinity", according to a press release from U.S.based GDS Architects. 

The building, which is expected to be 1,476-foot high, will use an LED facade and cameras on the back to project the surroundings behind the building onto its front. When turned on, the system will make the outlines of the tower impossible for the naked eye to see. Asides from using the building to project/broadcast special events and advertisements, the inside of "Tower Infinity" will be used to host entertainment and leisure facilities including a water park, cinemas and restaurants. 

One of the most significant features of the building is that it will be constructed using a great deal of clear glass and will boast an open floor plan so visitors can look down multiple levels.

The project does not have a scheduled completion date.
