Seoul's Soaring Hashtag Towers


Based in Copenhagan, international architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group, aka BIG, has released its conceptual plans for an innovative residential complex in South Korea. The project known as Cross # Towers is set to be part of the Yongsan master plan in the developing Yongsan International Business District in Seoul.

The structure, whose design mimics the hashtag symbol (#), includes two soaring towers of uneven height interlocked by two perpendicular cross-bridges. The parallel towers measure at 214 meters and 204 meters in height with the elevated bridges connecting at 70m and 140m. Each linking overpass includes a garden open to all residents of the complex. In addition to the sky gardens, the interconnected establishment is set to include over 600 housing units and facilities including a library, gallery space, and a kindergarten.
