Asymptote Architecture has released its Velo Towers design project that will become the essential part of the master plan as well as accommodating some new projects that surround it along the Yongsan Park, South Korea. These modern towers are composed of dynamic arrangement of stacked and rotated volumes from formal to conventional extrusion of massing that represents this building type. This project offers urban response as well as alternative architectural to conventional tower design. By blending the typical tower architecture into horizontal and vertical configuration provide a new formation that socially engaging and compelling architectural landmark for Yongsan District.

Implementing the art of choreography, all of these towers are carefully positioned so that each residential volume can take advantage of its position to enjoy the beauty of Han river from the distance. The roof gardens can be a great place to hangout, the bridge that joins these towers acts as neighborhood connectors for towers’ residents while housing fitness and recreation centers, pools, lounges, cafes and other facilities for its residents. You can enjoy spectacular views from the sky garden of Velo towers while enjoying a cup of coffee.

I like the concept of the towers that to provide the vistas for resdential apartment , but the shape is disturbing me , I don't now why ? , but seems the core of each tower is too huge structurlly .
Gorgeous. Make the glass a digital screen using projectors & you can have "screensaver" skins for the whole building. Great design structurally.
It is very modern and something that I had not expected from the headline. The disoriented loft spaces floor by floor is an engineering marvel in terms of aesthetics.
