Seoul’s Clustering Towers Connected by 30-Story Bridge

New York-based Asymptote Architecture just revealed this stunning proposal for the Yongsan International Business District of Seoul. Velo Towers is comprised of two skyscrapers that are composed of dynamic stacked and rotated volumes, along with a collection of open atrium spaces and roof gardens. The structure utilizes the latest advances in design, materials and digital fabrication that are now prevalent in present day automotive, aerospace and marine industries.

The two towers, which house 500 individual luxury units with custom prefabricated plug-in interior components, are connected by a 30-story-high bridge that acts as a community area, and features fitness and recreations centers, lounges, pools, spas and cafes along with a sky garden providing spectacular views over the entire Yongsan site.

Asymptote's project is designed as an integral part of the master plan accommodating several new projects that are situated along the newly planned Yongsan Park. Neighboring projects include MVRDV's Cloud Towers, the Cross # Towers by BIG Architects and Project R6 by REX.
