Liquid Glacial Table in London by Zaha Hadid Architects

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The Liquid Glacial design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic. The elementary geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table’s legs seem to pour from the horizontal in an intense vortex of water frozen in time.

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

This project is an award-winning youth recreation center, and sports facility in the Town of Falmouth. The site is a long, sloping slice of land between an existing gymnasium, and the playing fields. We designed the new building to re-establish the privileged viewing position that the original building enjoyed. Generous amounts of glass are set into a wall clad with concrete panels. The inside gathering space allows spectators to watch as teams trot to the fields, play their game, and return in victory (or defeat).
