World’s First Invisible Building to be Built

Designed by U.S.-based GDS Architects, the glass-encased Tower Infinity will top out at 450 meters (1,476 feet) and have the third highest observation deck in the world.  But, that’s not the cool part, the building, which is planned for Seoul, Korea, will be able to camouflage itself making it nearly invisible.

Cameras will take continuous images of the building’s surroundings.  This will be digitized and projected onto the building’s surface using thousands of LED lights.  No matter how the weather, sunlight, or other things change around the building, the cameras and computers will change the exterior skin to match, becoming, more or less, invisible!

The building will have standard red safety lighting on its roof and only become invisible at certain times to allow for airplane safety.
