BUSAN, South Korea – WIRED UK recently featured the Busan Cinema Center in its March edition.
The two page article titled “Precarious slab is the world's longest cantilevered roof”, with the photo of the Busan Cinema Center with its unique LED roof lit up, was published in the WIRED UK magazine.
The article in WIRED said of the Busan Cinema Center, “the complex comprising cinemas, offices, studios and restaurant supports the longest cantilevered roof in the world”, adding the observation that “creating an 85-metre overhang anchored at just one end isn't easy, what with gravity and wind to deal with, so engineers built the roof around a gridlike steel girder system.”
It also observed that “The Busan Cinema Center opened in September last year and is the new home of the Busan Film Festival, Asia's largest, and houses a 4,000-seat outdoor cinema.”
