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.

Zaha Hadid IRL Zaha Hadid will be the guest of honor at One Thousand Museum’s groundbreaking ceremony, which will mark the start of work on the 709-foot tower, built by Zaha Hadid Architects.

One Thousand Museum Tower is one of several by high-profile architects that are beginning to take root in Miami, changing the tide of investment from real estate that is solely driven by waterfront locations to architecture that is high-end and luxurious.

New renderings of Zaha Hadid Architect‘s 215 meter-high One Thousand Museum Tower in downtown Miami have been released. As the first Zaha Hadid-designed skyscraper to grace the skyline of the Western Hemisphere, the 60-story luxury condominium will mask its program with a prominent concrete exoskeleton.

The building’s 83-condos – ranging from 5,400 to 11,000 square feet and featuring amenities such as private elevators, media rooms, and libraries – will cost $5 and $15 million per unit. Community amenities will include a helipad, a deck with multiple pools and cabanas, rooftop event spaces, a cigar lounge, sun decks and billiards rooms, a fitness center and a screen room.

The tower’s massive concrete exoskeleton, standing in stark contrast with the delicate and transparent glazing system, will form delicate curves around the curtain wall system to conceal a series of platforms and balconies. This structure will continue to flow over the podium, which articulated with large perforated metal panels, to ground itself at the street level while visually unifying the structure as a single object within the skyline.

Civil Court for Madrid from Zaha Hadid

by Ali Kriscenski

 

It is difficult to ignore the designs of Pritzker Prize winning architect Zaha Hadid. Bold, brave, often controversial – her ambitious experiments in form always seem to stir discourse and debate. Hadid’s design for the new civil courts building in Madrid is no exception. Planned as part of the new Campus de la Justicia at Valdebebas in the Spanish capital city, Hadid’s Civil Court is expected to become a focal point among works from Norman Foster, IM Pei and others. While we are not always big fans of Hadid’s obsession with form, we are intrigued by the “intelligent” façade of this Madrid courthouse, that in addition to being extremely eye-catching, is intended to regulate the building’s indoor environment.

It is of course the intelligent façade that caught our eye with this design. Made of metallic panels, this double-ventilated envelope is a dynamic, moving component that will respond to the environment by opening and closing. We only have an abstract understanding based on the architect’s website, but it sounds like heating, cooling and ventilation will all be moderated and control through this intelligent façade. On the roof, these metal panels will include integrated photovoltaic cells.

The proposed 74,500 square meter (~800,000 square foot) building features a spiraling semi-circular atrium that overlooks an interior public courtyard. This space is meant to draw visitors and connect the building with the surrounding campus. The atrium also brings natural light down through the building and into court rooms.

The project is slated for completion within two years and, as with all of Zaha Hadid’s extreme designs, we definitely plan to follow the progress and check it out in its final form. Always interesting and thought provoking (both good and bad), there is something about the work of this architect that just keeps her in our sights. It will be interesting to see if her latest design
