Modern Architecture - Cloud 360 Observatory (4 pics)

Designed by Korean architecture firm Kyungam Architects Associates, "Cloud 360" was a competition entry to build the Daewon Park Observatory in Seongnam, South Korea.

The ground level is made up of open space, while stilts support the raised building and the two elevators inside. At the top, a restaurant, café, and media center all look out into the open sky, and provide 360-degree panoramic views of the land below.

Looks cool but I bet he didn't consult with a structural engineer on the design! There's no way that is stable / strong enough.
