Hailed as the 'City of the Future' and considered as 'Korea's High tech Utopia' - the city of Songdo has commissioned artist Sinta Tantra to create a spectacular floor painting as part of its major public art programme with Korean and International artists. British artists include Richards Woods and Designer Abe Rogers. Located by the waterfront, the artwork measures over 3,300 metres square and is due to be completed in July, 2015.
The commission is part of Songdo's 10-year development plan which has been built on 1,500 acres of reclaimed land located 35 miles (56 km) from the capital of Seoul. Estimating to cost in excess of $40 billion, the city of Songdo has been recorded as the most expensive and largest private real estate development in history.
