* Residential Architecture: Velo Towers by Asymptote Architecture in the Yongsan International Business District

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 14 June 2012

Residential Architecture: Velo Towers by Asymptote Architecture in the Yongsan International Business District: “..the pair of skyscrapers are composed of stacked and rotated volumes which are a programmatic counterpoint to the conventional tall building typology. by breaking down the scale and massing of the two high-rises into interconnected circular dimensions, the project proposes an alternative architectural and urbanistic response to the traditional repetitions of the cityscape. the eight distinct components are turned and positioned to capture views of the adjacent yongsan park overlooking the han river in the distance. a collection of roof gradients, shared amenities and internal circulation positioned around light-filled atrium spaces are massed to vertically distribute six to eight story residential communities in the yongsan skyline. a raised plinth hovers above the communal landscape which surrounds the base of the towers while the skybridge floats 30 stories above it. the interior fitness, recreation centers, lounges, pools, spas and cafes along with the sky garden provide views of the overall district..”  Another dynamic project for the Yongsan International Business District..
