He has designed a building that resembles the marvels of nature. The building builds layers of curving shapes into a 600 meter-tall skyscraper.

Inspired by lava flows and sediment accumulation in the nature, Woo-Young has used the layering and fluctuating forms of energy fields in his design.

The proposed location of the massive structure is at the newly developed modern metropolis of Songdo in Incheon, South Korea.

Woo-Young’s building is actually several in one, imagined as many small buildings melded into one large skyscraper. It features a vertical park that with climbing walls, paths for jogging and biking and picnic areas.

The building which restores humans’ connection to the earth in an ultra-modern, concrete urban future owes its design to the concept of Pangea, the earth’s initial landmass, says the designer.
