In the context of the master plan for Yongsan Dreamhub prepared by architect Daniel Libeskind, for expansion of the Seoul business district, MVRDV has designed two residential towers in an unusual shape.

MVRDV, The Cloud, residential skyscrapers
MVRDV architectural studios, founded by Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries, recently unveiled an ambitious new housing project.

The development consists of two residential skyscrapers 260 and 300 metres high, linked in the middle by what looks like a cloud of "pixels" deriving from a snapshot of what appears to be an outward explosion of the two towers? vertical volumes.

The "cloud" designed by the Dutch architects of MVRDV is located about halfway up the two towers. The skyscrapers have a square base with 4 apartments on each floor, while the cloud consists of an apparently irregular aggregation of simple volumes containing accessory services for the residences (wellness centre, conference centre, fitness centre, swimming pools, restaurants and cafés), with landscaping of free open surfaces.
