International architecture practice BIG have just shared with us the Cross # Towers, their latest project in Seoul, South Korea. BIG’s design includes two elegant towers with a height of 214 and 204m. These horizontal towers serve as the foundation for green-roofed sky gardens with dramatic views of the urban skyline.
The towers will be located in the Yongsan International Business District, and will provide over 600 apartments, as well as a library, a kindergarten and a gallery space. The design ensures that the tower apartments have optimal conditions of the Sun and landscape. Three public bridges connect two slender towers at different levels – underground, at the street and in the sky. The outdoor landscape is envisioned to draw from the charm of traditional courtyards combined with the modernity of the project. Take a look!
