World Business Center (WBCB)
Asymptote's design, a single building comprising three distinct towers, effectively questions older notions of singularity and autonomy in tall building design.
The groundbreaking design by Asymptote Architecture was selected as the winning project in the international design competition in January, 2007, and the composition was inspired by Busan's dramatic situation as a modern skyline set against a striking backdrop of mountains and sea.
The tallest tower expresses the inherent structural elegance of the scheme as a whole, and through the entire building's elegant, formal and sculptural manifestation, the WBCB provides Busan and Korea with a unique, symbolic architectural expression for the 21st Century.
At at height of 560 meters the building will be among the tallest in Asia.
