Bjarke Ingels Group’s latest plan interlocks two bridges between two vertical towers, creating above ground park space.

Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has designed an apartment block for Seoul, South Korea that looks to have been inspired by the hashtag. Two interlocking bridges feature between two vertical buildings to create the Cross # Towers. These were added due to height restrictions, which prevented the architects from designing taller buildings. The towers will provide over 600 apartments, a library, kindergarten, and gallery space. The bridging blocks will feature roof gardens for residents and there is also a submerged courtyard below ground level. Click through to see pictures of the building design:
