Venus Tower
incheon - shortlisted
The concept design for the master plan and city tower of the city of incheon comes from a single moment, an inspiration, hence, a rediscovery and re-interpretation of a master piece: Botticelli's Birth of Venus. we strongly believe that contemporary architecture, today strongly attached with time and politics and socio-political issues, needs to also form a dialogue with the past. A dialogue not only understood as literal interpretation but subjective definition, a metamorphosis of form and meaning. propose to base our design concept on the Birth of Venus, reinterpreting the act of birth, the birth of a new that rises from a large body of water and a rich blend of cultural diversity: the cosmopolitan city of past, present and future.
