검은집 asif khan just created the darkest building on earth

asif khan’s pavilion for the 2018 winter olympics is said to be ‘the darkest building on earth.’ coated in layers of vantablack VBx2, the building absorbs more than 99% of the light that hits it, creating a beautifully deceiving illusion. 


the exterior appears flat, but it isn’t. it’s quite curved. rods of different lengths — holding small lights — jut out of the parabolic pavilion, toward the viewer, like distant stars. at this scale, each inch could represent a lightyear. the vantablack pigment. asif khan’s execution. together, they’ve made a simple, near-perfect ethereum of stars for olympic attendees to wonder at, in south korea. it may be the closest thing to space we have to visually experience on earth.
