18 glass boxes that constitute a collection of shop windows for 18 tenants – that is the refurbished facade of Chungha building located right at the Gangnam high street in Seoul, South Korea. Large windows expose each individual commercial-service space. The glass in combination with LED lights gave the old-fashioned building completely new face.

Famous Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens has been recently expanded. A new futuristic structure by Zaha Hadid is a restaurant building. Lots of curved glass and fancy undulating roof made of tensile fabric epitomize the uniqueness of the project. Have you seen it live?
