Architectural firm GDS Architects has announced that it has received its permits to build the Tower Infinity near the Incheon Airport just outside of Seoul, South Korea. Although at 450 meters tall, it won’t be the tallest building in the world, it does have one unique feature: it will come equipped with a cloaking device.

Charles Wee of GDS Architects explained in a statement that the company wanted to “provide the World’s first invisible tower, showcasing  innovative Korean technology.”

 

The tower’s facade will come equipped with LED projectors and cameras. The cameras will capture the area around the building, then stitch them together in a panorama to display through the projectors. The result will make the tower seem transparent from the outside when the projectors are turned on.
