Kumho Asiana Main Tower (금호아시아나 본관) is the headquarters of the Kumho Asiana Group, a South Korean conglomerate.

The head office of Air Seoul is in the building.[2]

Architecture[edit]

Unlike the adjacent apartment and office buildings, the Kumho Asiana Main tower is curved. The designers said they were inspired by the image of an airplane in flight. [3] Kumho Asiana is the parent company of Asiana Airlines. [4] The glass and steel façade also sports a digital media board. The art façade is illuminated by 42,000 LED light bulbs to display different designs or works of art by commissioned artists. [5]
