Urban Planet: Cloud architecture hits Seoul Korea

Known as The Cloud, these two hi-rise residential buildings are joined in the middle by a ten stories of apartments and spanning living areas. Designed by Rotterdam-based MVRDV, the towers reach 260 and 300 metres and will be built by 2015.

  1. Good grief! When did the design process on these begin? Any time post-9/11? All I see are the exploding Twin Towers. This is nuts. Ugh!

  2. Is there an “icloud” version, where one steps out of their resident suite’s door and into their workplace door?

  3. This project has been put on hold and will likely not be built.  Korean news has ongoing reports of the dispute between clients and funding for the entire Dream Hub site.

  4. Looks like another vast “towers in a park” proposal.
