First project in South Korea is a waterfront hotel for the Winter Olympics by  Richard Meier

American architect Richard Meier says his first Korean project, the Seamarq Hotel, has qualities that are similar to influential homes he designed in the 1960s and 70s (+ movie).

Located in Gangneung, South Korea, the hotel is 60 kilometres from the city of PyeongChang, which will host the 2018 Winter Olympics. Meier’s hotel is part of a revitalisation effort in the region in preparation for the international sporting event.
