NIAB International Advisory Board Taps John Fareed to Consult on Major South Korea Design Center Project.

The NIAB International Advisory Board was created to provide market insight and guidance on the development of South Korea’s first major design center, to be constructed in the City of Guri just outside of Seoul. Leading design, architecture and manufacturing firms as well as other industry consultants have been selected to participate on the board to help facilitate the creation of the proposed $30 billion mixed-use project. Components of this project include the Guri World Design Center for expositions, as well as condominiums, hotels, retail, parks, a design university, a monorail system and more. Board members were selected for their leadership positions in the global design markets for hospitality, commercial and residential, as well as their business acumen, expertise and talent.

The Guri World Design Center will ultimately provide the tools and resources to architects, manufacturers and marketers from across the globe that wish to engage in the rapidly growing Asian market.
