The Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium was designed to create a landmark structure in a city center park, while expressing the unlimited growth potential of Incheon with a flying image. The open appearance of the interior and exterior was created by hi-tech materials and transparent curtain walls with a state-of-the art image.
The gymnasium building was designed to promote Incheon as a new hub city for Northeast Asia in the 21st century, by expressing a space that opens out toward those coming into Incheon, with a slopped roof that is elevated to the east.
