Hashtag cross towers push the boundaries in Seoul

Hashtag cross towers push the boundaries in Seoul

Here's an ambitious take on the skyscraper, incorporating multiple towers interlocking both vertically and horizontally.

Danish architects BIG are behind the Cross # Towers, a new commercial and residential centre in Seoul.

According to the Huffington Post, the design features two towers of just over 200m. Two horizontal structures bisect them at 140m and 70m, with the bridges adding a rooftop garden element to the whole shebang.  Another arrival deck joining the two towers can be found at ground level.

More than 600 high-end residences and amenities make up the development, including a library, gallery space and a kindergarten.
