Korea plans hashtag-inspired skyscraper

The hashtag or “#” symbol has taken on a lot more use in recent years, especially with the rise of social media tools like Twitter, where it’s used to highlight popular topics. So in a way, it’s a fitting model for an apartment building designed to act as a self-contained neighborhood, which is exactly the idea behind the Cross # Towers planned for South Korea. Dutch architectural firm, Bjarke Ingels Group BIG, is modeling the look of the proposed building after the familiar symbol, by placing two interlocking bridges between two skyscrapers, which will also support outdoor park areas to mimic the sort of spaces you’d normally find on the ground.
