LG Science Park Opens in Seoul

Global consumer electronics company LG Group opened the $3.74 billion LG Science Park in April of 2018 in Seoul, South Korea. Accommodating up to 25,000 employees, the 18-building campus provides 11.9 million sf of flexible research and office space designed to foster collaborative innovation among scientists and staff from multiple disciplines, including nanotechnology, chemistry, fabrication, and life sciences. The Integrated Support Centre (ISC) at the heart of the LG Science Park incorporates a welcome center, a multipurpose event hall, conference and seminar rooms, exhibition areas, a VIP lounge, daycare facilities, retail amenities, and sports and recreation areas. The ISC directly connects to central fabrication labs, clean rooms, and special convergence labs. Throughout the campus, flexible spaces, casual meeting areas, seminar suites, and bridges provide places for impromptu and structured interaction. The design team included lead architect and master planner HOK, Gansam Architects, and Chang-jo Architects. LEED Platinum sustainable design certification will be sought for the project, which was built in 33 months.
