The main feature of this majestic building with a height of 450 m and with a third in the world a viewing platform is its invisibility.

The creators plan to achieve “the illusion of invisibility” with high-tech LED facade system, which uses a series of cameras to send images in real time on a reflective surface construction. In other words, everything that happens behind the building, will be displayed on the front part of it. In fact, this is a modern camouflage. By digitally processing, after obtaining images, they will be scaled, rotated and combined to form a panoramic image, which will make the building inaccessible to the human eye.

However, for birds and planes which fly past, the building will remain visible, thanks mounted with a red twinkling lights that are visible from afar.

Final completion date is still unknown. But this place is definitely promises to be a tourist mecca, because apart from the unusual appearance here will be located cinemas, cafes and bars, rides, a water park, a heavenly garden, hotel, and even a floating observation outdoor terrace.
