Zaha Hadid’s international body of work is largely defined by graceful curves inspired by nature.
She brings this sensibility to 520 West 28th, marking a dramatic shift away from the hard angles that dominate standard residential architecture.
The building’s elegant hand-crafted metal façade is driven by one continuous line, which loops its way skywards. These dynamic curves create a distinctive chevron pattern that embraces interlacing levels, maximizing privacy and security between residences.
As the chevron weaves up from the ground, its folds create a multi-level design that links residence exteriors and interiors together in one sweeping movement. The result is a vertical landscape sitting directly on the High Line, comprising 39 unique residences.

Zaha Hadid approaches the amenities areas as four different collections that are tied together with a clean and consistent palette of materials.
These elements are then incorporated in slightly nuanced ways to create a progression in mood and atmosphere based on the level of intimacy of each space.
A seamless lifestyle is assured by Related Management’s holistic approach to service as both the developer and manager of this unique residential building, ensuring that residents of 520 West 28th will receive a proven suite of offerings on par with Zaha Hadid’s visionary design.
Residents can also curate their own tailored experience with access to an extensive collection of concierge services through their designated Luxury Attaché representative.
39-unit Building including bespoke kitchens manufactured by Boffi, the building will also host gallery spaces as part of a wider arts initiative in its immediate vicinity.

The collection of residences at 520 West 28th represents Zaha Hadid’s vision for modern living.
Working within her distinctive architectural language, she applies a powerful elegance and detail to the interiors, focusing on nuances that reflect the overall experience of the building.
The 39 generous loft-like residences are individually crafted, each with the artist’s signature mark woven into the design. Residents become immersed in Hadid’s fluid world—a thoughtful collection of living spaces.
The interiors integrate seamlessly into the sculpted nature of the building’s exterior, creating one monumental piece of art.
Generous master bedroom suites include en-suite master bathrooms, large walk-in closets or dressing rooms, and linen closets.
Among the units available, prices range from $4.97 million for a two-bedroom home, and go up to $50 million for The Penthouses by Zaha Hadid

The technology is a futuristic manufacturing facility based on Rapid Liquid Printing, a breakthrough 3-D printing technology developed in collaboration with Steelcase, which can rapidly produce objects of almost any size or shape using a robot and a tank of gel.
The space serves as a manufacturing facility in which a robot instantly prints tote bags and art objects inside a glass tank of translucent gel. After printing, each product is removed, cleaned, and put on display.
This exhibit is the first public demonstration of MIT’s rapid liquid printing technology.
Rapid liquid printing can produce large-scale objects out of high-grade materials like rubber, foam, or plastic in a matter of seconds or minutes by “drawing” them in a gel suspension.
Traditional 3-D printing is restricted by slow speeds, scale constraints, and poor material quality, which makes it unreliable as a mainstream manufacturing process. With rapid liquid printing, manufacturing can be reimagined as an artistic experience unlimited by scale or gravity, asking us to rethink design, production, uniformity, and product life-cycles.
A strong attraction for the different materials and their intrinsic features has always guided my work as a designer. I have decided to dedicate a few years to research on materials. My intent is to try and rethink the way materials are used, as well as the production processes, using the possibilities made available by the new technologies.
To me, those technologies (Computer Numerical Controlled machines, 3D printers) are an integral part of the creative process. I like the idea of hijacking the use of those complex machines, to turn them into manual experimenting tools. I favor an instinctive approach, working more on hardware than software. The primary aim of my research is to produce knowledge, to generate new aesthetics. When working on a process, I try to explore it in depth, in order to create a rich repertoire of shapes and possibilities. This inventory then nourishes my world as a designer.
Implementation comes only after research, in particular through collaborations with companies, that see potentialities in my work to develop a product.
