In 2004, @zahahadidarchitects made history when she became the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize. Her legacy lives on in projects like 520 West 28th Street, an 11-story structure named for its Chelsea address. The L-shaped building abuts the @highlinenyc, and was completed earlier this year. // photos by @geph
One of our featured artists @carinedoutrelepont is at the gallery right now providing insight into her mesmerizing work shooting volcanos. Here she tells us of her latest adventure visiting the Big Island in Hawai'i by helicopter, capturing the crater collapse, and being the last plane allowed near the crater before the eruption.
Бизнес центр Dominion Tower - единственная постройка великого архитектора Захи Хадид в Москве. Строительство завершено в 2015 году. Фасад здания облицован белыми композитными алюминиевыми панелями Alucobond A2, которые в зависимости от освещения меняют свой цвет. Здание уникально и производит сильное впечатление! Это потрясающе!!! Без сомнения топ N1 зданий 21 века в Москве!!! #zahahadid#bestarhitecture#testbuilding
Zaha Hadid's work is tinted by her bold and controversial attitude towards architecture paradigms. Each one of her designs can be recognised by its unusual shapes that test boundaries and materialize her determination and indifference to practical constraints. ❗Why stick with the obvious when you can break conventions and create something entirely new⁉️ #Inspiration
Morpheus Hotel, Macau construction progress.
The Morpheus Hotel integrates dramatic public spaces and generous guest rooms with innovative engineering and formal cohesion.
An extruded rectangle carved by a series of voids, the underlying diagram of the Morpheus Hotel is of two towers connected at podium and roof levels. The hotel’s requirement for expansive podium and roof areas for guests defined connecting the towers at their top and base. Three sky bridges crossing the central voids house unique spaces for further guest facilities. This diagram arrangement maximizes the number of rooms with views across the city and equally distributes guest rooms in both side towers.
A free-form structural steel exoskeleton frees the hotel’s internal layout from vertical support, optimizing the interior space for the many varied guest facilities and giving maximum flexibility. Expressive and purpsoeful, this fantastic structure defines many of the hotel’s public spaces.
Built for Melco Crown Entertainment at the City of Dreams, their flagship resort in Macau, the 40-storey Morpheus Hotel accommodates almost 800 guestrooms, suites and sky villas. The hotel also includes a wide variety of event facilities, gaming rooms, lobby atrium, restaurants, spa and sky pool. Including extensive back-of-house areas and supporting facilities, the tower’s design resolves the hotel’s many complex programs within a single cohesive envelope.
