Ekaterina Busygina took these amazing architectural photos in South Korea

South Korea in general and Seoul in particular has attracted a wave of prominent architects, and photographer Ekaterina Busygina captured some of the incredible diversity:

MVRDV's The Imprint, a dual structured entertainment facility, sits as the center piece of a new tourist hub in Seoul, South Korea. The sibling buildings, the Wonderbox and Nightclub, share an architectural language; both becoming an echo of their family, the immediate surrounding buildings. A golden spot floating over the building and the plaza in front boldly marks the Nightclub entrance.

#HelloFrom The neofuturistic Dongdaemun The Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) was designed by Zaha Hadid with the concept of "Metonymic Landscape." Metonymy refers to a method of describing a specific object indirectly and, Hadid integrated historical, cultural, urban, social, and economic aspects of Seoul deduced from this method in order to create a scene of landscape. Designed as a cultural hub in the historical district of Seoul as well as Korea's largest fashion district, the DDP is composed of undulating surfaces that resemble the flow of liquid and allow the flexibility in space. According to Hadid, the fundamental features of her design were "transparency, porousness, and durability." Many ecological features, double-skin facade, solar panels, and recycling water system are included in the building. 💙 • • • I want to thank you for a great year 2019. It has been a fantastic year with a lot of experiences and great travels. Especially my trip through South Korea was a highlight of this year. But also my visit to Beijing was short but wonderful. Finally I want to say thank you to all my friends and all the people I met this year! Without you the year would not have been half as good! Have a great 2020! ✨ #UrbanandStreet #streetmobs #archi_unlimited #streets_vision #estheticlabel #strangertonez @vsco #guardiantravelsnaps @passionpassport @voyaged #visualambassadors #theimaged #seoul_korea #urbanrising #visit_seoul @artofvisuals #travelingthroughtheworld #nightshooters #depthobsessed #urbanromantix #artofvisuals #citykillerz #inspirationcultmag @ignant @lightroom #streetclassics #gramslayers #neonnoir @street.classics @getinspiredmagazine #night_gram #moodygrams @bladerunnerrealworld #neonnoir #neonlights #zahahadidarchitects #streetgrammers #urbanandstreet @zahahadidarchitects @urbanandstreet @illgrammers #ig_neoncities @urbanromantix @kodaklosers @prime_optiqx @symmetryhunters @republic.of.symmetry @illgrammers @cybervibe @cyberpunk_cities @ig_neoncities @instagram @seoul.southkorea @visitseoul_official @ddp_seoul @seoul
