Galaxy Soho in Beijing, China by Zaha Hadid

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid

The Galaxy SOHO project in central Beijing for SOHO China is a 330 000m2 office, retail and entertainment complex that will become an integral part of the living city, inspired by the grand scale of Beijing. Its architecture is a composition of four continuous, flowing volumes that are set apart, fused or linked by stretched bridges. These volumes adapt to each other in all directions, generating a panoramic architecture without corners or abrupt transitions that break the fluidity of its formal composition.

Neues Stadt-Casino in Basel, Switzerland by Zaha Hadid Architects

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects
More projects by Zaha Hadid

An L-shaped volume that gives a new identity to the Stadt-Casino, enclosing the existing music hall and connecting it with the adjacent Hans Huber Hall. This homogeneous, plastic volume is differentiated and articulated by bulging and inverting its surface, enclosing ‘foreign bodies’ and hollowing it out to create a generous entrance hall.

The façade of the old music hall and the Hans Huber Hall create the main façade for the Neues Stadt Casino along the Steinenberg. The continuation of the two buildings, highlighted by a cut or slice, allows the front surface of the new building to become cohesive whilst the new volume remains sufficiently distanced from the existing building.

Neil Barrett Flagship Store in Tokyo, Japan by Zaha Hadid Architects

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

More projects by Zaha Hadid

Our concept for the Neil Barrett flagship store in Tokyo is based on the minimal cut of the brand`s fashion design and parallels its approach in using the same design parameters of fixed points, folding, pleating and cut outs. Rather than defining a single room or space, our design creates a circular passage allowing the customer to experience the space in multiple ways and interpretations. Furniture staged in key points throughout the store creates the spatial concept of a narrow enclosure changing to an open condition. In two formal elements the design shifts between architecture and sculpture, where a compact mass of surface layers unravel and fold to form the shelving display and seating. The emerging folds will be used as display area for the NB accessory collection.

Napoli-Afragola High Speed Train Station in Naples, Italy by Zaha Hadid Architects

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects
More projects by Zaha Hadid

A gateway to Naples, a well-organized transport interchange and a landmark announcing the approach to the city. Our concept is a bridge extending across the tracks, an urbanized public link shaped by a dynamic architectural language geared towards the articulation of movement.

The New High Speed Station Napoli Afragola emerges from the idea of an overhead concourse for accessing platforms, enlarged to such a degree that it becomes the main passenger hub, in itself.

The new library, research centre and archive for St. Antony’s College overcomes strong physical constraints to form a suspended ‘bridge’ between existing buildings – blending built and natural elements to find a coherent form – fronted by a curved frameless glass façade which sweeps above a sunken courtyard area.

More projects by Zaha Hadid

Soft, dynamic tectonic turns establish the new Civil Courts of Justice as a pivotal point for an urban masterplan – horizontal shifts in mass generate ‘elasticity’, drawing visitors to a structure which ‘floats’ above ground plain – shifting metallic panels animate the façade – a spiraling atrium within curls around a public courtyard.

Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati by Zaha Hadid Architects

The first freestanding building for The Contemporary Arts Center, founded in Cincinnati in 1939 as one of the first institutions in the United States dedicated to the contemporary visual arts. The new CAC building will provide spaces for temporary exhibitions, site-specific installations, and performances, but not for a permanent collection. Other program elements include an education facility, offices, art preparation areas, a museum store, a cafe and public areas. To draw in pedestrian movement from the surrounding areas and create a sense of dynamic public space, the entrance, lobby and lead-in to the circulation system are organized as an “Urban Carpet.”
