Check out these conceptual designs for Hong Kong's proposed PleXus Tower — a segmented structure that will integrate directly with the city's transportation infrastructure. Given its undeniable Tron-like aesthetic, we'll be sure to bring our lightcycles.

The tower is designed to fit into the banks of West Hong Kong Harbor where its distributed pods will connect with the city's transportation fabric. The strange arrangement of the pods will be bridged together by pipelines over the water, working with the existing terminal. Though situated on the water's edge, residential and commercial spaces will be completely accessible by car — all the way to the top.

More from Yanko Design:

The PleXus Tower was conceived as a segmented but highly connected network of major transportation functions, as well as a conventional housing program. The shift in the way the tower design is read, as well as in the functionality of each segment, provides greater programmatic control. Residences are accessible yet private, parking is convenient, and circulation through the ground-level public space provokes interest. At night, lights will glow from the panels, reminding us of the connections these segments share as well as blending in with Hong Kong's unique night skyline.
