Fantastic Palace was constructed as a response to living for a year in South Korea. The design of the Korean style palace is taken from the Royal Palace in Seoul. The interior of the palace can only be reached by a bridge that spans an artificial lake. This gives the impression of leaving the mundane, ordinary world in order to 'cross over' to the world of royalty, decadence and fantasy by the only access provided; hence the title Fantastic Palace.
