Cross # Towers

03yon
‘The Cross # Towers constitute a three-dimensional urban community of interlocking horizontal and vertical towers. Three public bridges connect two slender towers at different levels – underground, at the street and in the sky.’ 
– Bjarke Ingels

International architecture practice BIG has developed ‘Cross # Towers’, a 21 000 m2 proposal positioned next to the existing urban fabric of the future development zones of the Yongsan master plan, designed by Studio Libeskind for the Korean development group Dreamhub. The design includes two elegant towers with a height of 214 and 204m. To meet the vertical requirements of the site, the exceeding building mass is transformed into an upper and lower horizontal bar, which bridge the two structures at 140m and 70 m elevation. the two edifices are additionally connected through the arrival areas at the ground level and a courtyard below ground.
