What’s your idea of a unique building? A sharp, new building with a somewhat curvy roof having many floors? To a lot of us, the Manhattan downtown or those skyscrapers in Dubai are the ultimate vision of untraditional buildings. But you know what? The Tri Bowl is going to change your perspective forever.
Long gone are the days when such skyscrapers used to be the icon of peculiar constructions like in New York. Or sometimes people like to affiliate gothic style English building structure with a non-mainstream construction.
That’s because you all haven’t seen Korea’s Tri Bowl in Incheon yet. Korea seems to be getting ahead in constructing untraditional buildings and this is what we are committed to showing you through this blog.
What Really Is Tri Bowl?
The Incheon Tri-bowl is built by iArc Architects with a never-seen-before concept of placing the head like structure on top of the building. Perhaps, this is to give a look of an alien with a big head. Or maybe it is just a very good effort to put up a site worth seeing and visiting to attract as many tourists as possible. Since Korea’s tourism industry is thriving swiftly, the government is trying hard to erect as many bewildering sites as possible. And Tri Bowl is another try stemming out of this idea.
Tri Bowl, as the name suggests, looks like a bowl. The entire building is floating on a pond with water as deep as 2-ft. The main idea of this place is to symbolize the ocean, sky, and earth. To enter the main gate, a bridge is erected to take tourists inside the building. This same bridge continues even inside the building to move around. This is a very novel concept which you will not find in many places.
Things You Can Do At Tri Bowl
Gladly, the only purpose of Tri Bowl is not only its breathtaking exterior but rather the options you have inside of it. It is basically a recreational building that offers mostly entertainment related opportunities.
There’s a large theatre/exhibition center which can contain up to 400 people in one go. The fun thing about this theatre is its structure. It is built like the old-age Greek parliaments in a circular shape to give the visitors an aesthetically pleasing sense.
Moreover, there are multiple spots to relax and enjoy the sight with your friend and family. Many rooms are allocated for exhibitions and performative arts where artists come and exhibit their craft. Since Korea is an art-loving country, you will find a lot of its tourist places dedicated to promoting local art and crafts. Also, there’re rooms for administration and management within the building to keep the work going well.
The building was completed on 10th March 2010. You can get the idea of how big it is by knowing that it is 2,869 sqm (building), and 12,300 sqm (site). There are so many other things you can do in this place but we recommend you to check the official website or call them (+82-2-1330) while you are planning to get there. This will help you have an accurate idea about the timing and all.
The full address of the Tri Bowl is 24-6 Sangdo-dong Yeonsu-gu, Icheon, South Korea.
