SEOUL | Seoul IBD Diagonale Tower | 343m | 1125ft | 64 fl | Canceled

Diagonale Tower

SOM’s new 64-storey Diagonal Tower to be located in the developing commercial and mixed-use Yongsan International Business District in the heart
of Seoul, South Korea, exudes a modern take on structural expressionism. The tower progressively addresses the critical issues associated with
skyscraper design in an iconic and refined manner. From structural and energy efficiency to reduced construction costs that the tower must meet,
SOM have strove to integrate these aspects holistically into the overall aesthetics.

Rising to 343 meters, the diagonal structure serves more than visual stimuli. Somewhat similar to Norman Foster’s Hearst Tower in New York, the
diagonal megaframe reduces the amount of steel required by over 25% when compared to conventionally framed buildings. In addition the non-
linear vertical surface mitigates wind loading and vortices. Primary structural support is achieved via 4 piers at the corners of the building – which
in turn opens up the interior lobby and atrium.

Passive environmental control strategies employed within and on the façade of the tower include sunshades that are positioned according to their
orientation – horizontal, vertical, and diagonal – thus, mitigating heat gain in the summer and permitting direct sunlight during winter months.
Atypical of skyscraper curtain walls is the triple pane glazing utilized, instead of the standard dual pane seen on the majority of towers. A critical
decision in choosing this type of glazing stemmed from SOM’s goal to meet Seoul Green Guideline criteria. Internally, the building incorporates a
chilled beam system whereby, thermally active hydronics transfer heat and cooling instead of air. The resultant system surpasses traditional air
driven systems both in efficiency and human occupant comfort. Text copied from a ArchDaily article.

The high resolution illustrations can be found in this thread.

















Illustrations by SOM and Crystal CG.

Yes, seen a few diagonale designed skyscrapers in the last few years by both SOM and Foster + Partners. Below is a design for a tower in Abu Dhabi by Foster + Partners.

Please build this, what a futuristic and exquisite looking design, it actually sits in harmony well with the surroundings and it's immediate neighbours.

I love this design, it's a bunch of antiprisms stacked on top of each other.

Now i'm DAILY CHECK project's progress. Some citizens complain about compensation. But that is just greed. Seoul mayor used to threaten to cancelled this project but already fufilled "legal terms". If he cancelled this project he will file a suit and have to pay for $ 31 billions. Therefore So far no problem.

I'm 100% sure not only this building but alos ALL IBD(25 skyscrpaers) building will be built.

Haha wow! I love how everyone is able to relate some of the new proposed buildings in the IBD to New York icons. Some people have good imaginations I guess

wow the location is perfect, this tower would not fit into every skyline, but next to all these unique ultra futuristic towers it will blend in perfectly.
