South Korea's answer is to build a biodome. It is their part of a broader effort to protect its native endangered species. They unveiled new designs for its National Research Center for Endangered Species that will be built in Yeongyang-gun, one of the cleanest pats of the Korean peninsula.
The idea, from Samoo Architects & Engineers (SAMOO), is to blend the three-part compound with the surrounding nature.
