BIG reveals tower scheme for Seoul masterplan

  • Comment

Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has joined the all-star team working on Daniel Libeskind’s Yongsan masterplan in Seoul

Danish practice BIG has designed 21,000 sqm ‘cross # tower’ proposal which will sit alongside the contentious cloud project by MVRDV as well as schemes by KPF, Coop Himmelblau, REX, Riken Yamamoto Fieldshop and Renzo Piano in the masterplan developed by Studio Libeskind for Korean developer dreamhub.

Studio Libeskind’s masterplan aims to transform the Yongsan International Business District and revitalise the Han riverfront.

The international architecture practice BIG has designed a two tower scheme exceeding 200m in height, to serve as a gateway to the new Yongsan business district. The towers will be bridged at two points with horizontal volumes to create a three-dimensional urban community of interlocking horizontal and vertical towers’.

The scheme will include 600 ‘high-end’ flats, a library, gallery space and a kindergarten.
