Winning Design for Seoul's National Assembly Smart Work Center and Press Center Unveiled

South Korean Haeahn Architecture, in collaboration with New-York-based H Architecture, has won a competition to design the Smart Work Center and Press Center at the historic site of the National Assembly Complex in Yeoido, which is the largest island in the Han River in Seoul.
