HOK pursues more superlab projects

LG Science Park, Seoul, by HOK

Architect ‘in early talks’ about designing second South Korean facility

HOK is hoping to land more work designing research facilities in South Korea, just weeks after its scheme for electronics giant LG opened in Seoul.

The US practice is understood to be in early talks about designing a new research facility in the country following its work on the £2.7bn complex for LG, which has already seen 18,000 researchers move into 20 buildings at the complex since it opened in April.

The LG scheme was designed by HOK’s London studio and will eventually see 25,000 people working out of 26 buildings when the remaining six buildings on the park are completed in 2022.
