PyeongChang 2018; Asif Khan to design building in Olympic Park

The British architect Asif Khan has designed a building for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Park:

“This impossibly black building will have four curved walls, but from a distance, it will look like a slit of blackness. Each of the facades will be studded with thousands of tiny lights — like stars against the night sky.”
