OMA, Galleria department store in Gwanggyo (South Korea)

With a petrous skin interrupted by a bulging loop of faceted glass, this department store stands at the heart of Gwanggyo, a new town close to Seoul. The building is by Rem Koolhaas's Rotterdam-based OMA, with Chris van Duijn leading the project. Surrounded by tall residential towers, the facades of the 10-story, 140,000-square-meter cubic block present triangular pieces of stone in earthy tones, and the opacity of these surfaces strikes a contrast with the glazed interruptions that bulge out with steel frames. Crowned with a roof garden, the Galleria also features a restaurant area, a cinema, and a cultural center with spaces for exhibitions and events.
