#Glasgow listed as one of the ‘52 Places to Go in 2018’ by the New York Times. “This historic city, known for its Art Nouveau flourishes, also has a blossoming modern side, with daring new buildings, bars, restaurants and galleries… Even more remarkable is the Riverside Museum, a #ZahaHadid construction from 2011 with a roof that resembles waves of water, a fitting motif considering the waterside location.” @NYTimes

The @NewYorkerMag explained at the Riverside Museum’s opening in 2011: “The building is visually striking, and inside it yields a space that is both dramatic and functional—with the capaciousness of a warehouse but also a sense of movement… the building reveals itself to you as you move through it and experience its curves. The glass walls at either end bring in plenty of daylight, and through the one facing the river you can see a huge nineteenth-century sailing ship permanently anchored next to the museum. There is something sentimental at the heart of any museum whose reason for being is to celebrate the affection we feel for objects that were once part of everyday life, but the Riverside Museum has a boldness that transcends coy nostalgia. This is powerful architecture built to house powerful things. Its easy, flowing quality reminds you that the purpose of this museum is to give these streetcars and fire engines new life in a post-industrial world, in which they are honored rather than used. You begin to understand what Hadid was trying to do when you look across the river to the lone remaining shipyard, where amid the cranes and drydocks stands a huge metal shed with a zigzagging roof, used for framing hulls. She took the shed as a starting point, but any architect with a pair of eyes could have done that. What Hadid saw was that, in echoing the shed, it was possible to arrive at a perfect metaphor for the evolution of an old industrial city like Glasgow. The city has gone from being a place where people labor at making things to a place where people come to be entertained; Hadid has taken something hard, tough, and workaday and made it fluid and inviting.”

Final weekend to visit ‘Zaha Hadid in Italy’ exhibition @MuseoMAXXI, Rome.
Zaha Hadid redefined the architecture of the 21st century and captured imaginations around the world. ‘Zaha Hadid in Italy’ at MAXXI presents the architect's intensive and enduring relationship with the country. The exhibition explores Hadid’s work through the rich and complex representational media she employed during the course of her career: from conceptual sketches to three-dimensional models and interdisciplinary studies, together with objects, videos and photographs revealing her investigative design research.
Alongside Hadid’s Italian works, other projects document the development and breadth of her architectural thinking as well as the evolution of her research.
Another area of the exhibition is dedicated to Hadid’s research at varied scales and in all fields, including product and fashion design, with pieces created for leading Italian brands such as @Fendi, @BulgariOfficial, #SawayaAndMoroni, @CassinaOfficial, @Magis_Official, @BeBItalia, @Slamp_Official and @CitcoItaly.

ICYMI: ‘Beijing is building the world’s largest airport’ (video via @SCMP_news / @CCTV)
With the city’s existing airport at capacity, Beijing’s new international airport will serve the world’s fastest growing aviation sector. Opening in 2019 and accommodating 72 million passengers per year by 2025 (630,000 flights/year on 4 runways), the airport is designed for further expansion to accommodate 100 million passengers and 4 million tonnes of cargo annually.
The 780,000m² new terminal with rail transportation centre is designed to be extremely user-focussed, efficient and adaptable for future growth; its 6-pier radial design gives exceptional convenience for passengers and flexibility in operations.
Evolving from principles within traditional Chinese architecture that organise interconnected spaces around a central courtyard, the new terminal’s design guides all passengers seamlessly through the relevant departure, arrival or transfer zones towards the grand courtyard at its centre – a multi-layered meeting space at the very heart of the terminal.
The terminal’s compact, radial design minimises distances between check-in and gate, as well as minimising distances between gates for transferring passengers. Every aircraft pier radiates from the terminal’s main central court where all passenger services & amenities are located.
Flowing parabolic folds within the terminal’s vaulted roof reach to the ground to support the structure and allow natural light within, directing all passengers to the central courtyard.
Designed to operate in many different configurations dependant on varying aircraft and passenger traffic throughout each day, the new airport will include an integrated transport centre offering direct links to Beijing city centre, local rail services and the national high-speed rail network.

@ZahaHadidDesign at @MaisonEtObjet #Paris. 19-23 Jan 2018
NOW! DESIGN A VIVRE, Stand B52E51/Hall 7.

In a career spanning four decades, Zaha Hadid’s pioneering vision redefined architecture and design for the 21st century and captured imaginations across the globe.
Collaborating with the world’s most iconic brands to create exquisite one-off, as well as limited-edition pieces, Hadid’s works are within some the world’s most respected museum collections and have been showcased in acclaimed retrospective exhibitions worldwide.
She created the “Zaha Hadid” label for her signature design pieces; each informed and inspired by her renowned architectural repertoire.
Zaha Hadid Design developed the collection, reinterpreting the relationships inherent throughout Hadid’s architecture. “My product designs and architecture have always been connected; some of our earliest projects were designs for products and interiors. These design pieces are very important to me and my team. They inspire our creativity by providing an opportunity to express our ideas through different scales and through different media; an essential part of our on-going design investigation,” Hadid had explained during her retrospective exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
The 2018 Zaha Hadid Collection conveys the unrivalled innovation within her work. Designed with Hadid’s unwavering belief in the power of invention in a diversity of materials both traditional and contemporary.
Outstanding new pieces continue the fluid lines and subtle, organic geometries that define the collection.
The Duo salt & pepper grinders (pictured) in matt finishes are signature Hadid; their twisting, interlocking forms echo the integration and coherence within her architecture. Further new pieces continue the evolution of the collection—an effortless manipulation of the beauty within natural forms—crafted to perfection and conveying the exquisite detail and composition of #ZahaHadid's revolutionary work.

#HappyNewYear2018 from all of us at @ZahaHadidArchitects. We wish everyone a healthy, enjoyable and successful 2018! (great photo by @charlotte_evrard1 for @SorbetMag featuring @ZahaHadidDesign’s #Bzero1 rings on the Serenity Platter)

ICYMI: Napoli-Afragola Station listed as one of 2017’s best buildings by @BBC_Culture. “This striking new station, one of 13 for Italy’s expanding high-speed rail network, writhes up and over eight railway tracks, connecting once-divided outer suburbs of Naples. It is both a spectacular, snake-like bridge expressing the dynamism of Italy’s 300kph railways and their equally serpentine trains and a main-line station complete with ticket offices, cafes, offices, along with haunting views of Mount Vesuvius. Because this is earthquake ­and volcano ­country, the intense and ingenious structural engineering of the building, by Italian State Railways’ engineers, is expressed throughout the forms of its dynamic architecture. While its sinuous structure appears seamless, the huge building is made up of individual parts that, if an earthquake occurs, will be able to move independently of one another. Most importantly, the Zaha Hadid-designed station is also a powerful symbol of how, economically, southern Italy might yet perk up.” Brilliant photo reposted from @Vincenzo_Bob

"Walkable London" exhibition at the @NLALondon Galleries until 29 Jan 2018 - proposing a network of pedestrian routes creating corridors across the capital that will significantly reduce congestion and pollution, while also enhancing safety and public health.
To make walking part of our daily routine, London needs a pedestrian network as an integral part of the city’s transport infrastructure. The UK capital has seen some great examples of pedestrianisation that has revitalised the individual districts. Walkable London initiates and presents a tangible strategy to connect these disparate pedestrianised zones.
Working with @HBD_chronotope, ZHA is applying urban data across the urban planning, design and architecture fields. Walkable London highlights the potential for new methods to explore and interpret the effects of design decisions on all aspects of urban life.
Urban data produced via digital devices presents an opportunity to discover new insights through intelligent processing and intuitive visualization of unstructured records.
Pedestrianising the city is not only about walkability; it is also about the local and city-wide socio-economic structure. Walkable London includes the first stage of the analysis — a city-wide study of the interconnections between pedestrianisation and socio-economic trends. "Walkable London" presents aggregate open data on pedestrianisation rates, commercial development and human activity.

ICYMI: Bee’ah Headquarters in #Sharjah #UAE tops-out towards its Q4 2018 completion.
The new headquarters building continues Bee’ah’s on-going investment to transform attitudes and behaviours in communities by providing the infrastructure, tools and support to achieve their environmental goals.
Working towards zero waste to landfill, cleaner air and water, renewable energy and sustainable future targets, Bee’ah is developing and providing environmental solutions; converting waste from being something that is a consumptive by-product of society to something that can be core to society’s future.
Environmental considerations are woven into every aspect of the new headquarters’ design. It will be a zero net energy consumption building with photovoltaic cells to ensure complete reliance on renewable energy. Bee’ah will use @Tesla’s advanced Powerpack battery technology, with a total capacity of 1,890 kWhs, to store energy from the photovoltaic cells.
Chairman of Bee’ah HE Salim Al Owais said, “Through our HQ project, we have formed partnerships with some of the world’s most renowned entities, to examine as to how we can maximise the potential for sustainability in the built environment. With its ultra-low carbon footprint, minimal water and energy usage and the efficient recycling of construction materials, this project will set a benchmark for all future green construction projects in the Gulf region. It is also a model for a green building system that can be replicated across the UAE, as the nation seeks to transition into a green economy.” Designed in response to its natural environment as a series of intersecting dunes orientated to optimize prevailing winds, the new headquarters is being constructed to LEED Platinum certification standards of the United States Green Building Council (@USGBC). @beeahhq #architecture #zahahadid #zahahadidarchitects

The #Hungerburg funicular railway, #Innsbruck celebrates its 10th anniversary.
Since December 2007 over 4.5 million passengers have made more than 8 million journeys on the funicular railway between the centre of Innsbruck up the Nordkette mountain to Hungerburg. In 2017 alone, over 600,000 passengers made 2.1 million journeys on the railway and used its four stations designed by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA). The Hungerburg funicular (Hungerburgbahn) is part of Innsbruck’s Nordpark Cable Railway (Nordkettenbahnen) and begins at the Congress underground station in the centre of the city. Trains stop at Lowenhaus Station before crossing the bridge over the River Inn, then climbing to Alpenzoo Station and on to Hungerburg where passengers can continue their journey on the Seegrube and Hafelekar cable cars up to its summit at 2,300m.
Shortlisted for the 2008 Stirling Prize by the Royal Institue of British Architects, the design of each station adapts to its own unique context, topography, altitude, and passenger circulation, with roofs that echo natural ice formations, like glaciers or frozen mountain streams.
Each station’s lightweight roof structure ‘floats’ above a concrete plinth, creating an artificial landscape that describes the passenger circulation within. When completed in 2007, the stations were the world’s largest structures using double-curved glass in construction. “The Hungerburgbahn connects the vibrant city of Innsbruck with nature and its stations have become an integral part of Innsbruck’s cityscape,” explained Innsbruck mayor Christine Oppitz-Plorer.

Using innovative new design and production methods that have since become mainstream – such as CNC milling, thermoforming, and computational parametric design – enabled precision in translating the fluid geometries of the design into the built structures.
Innsbruck will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Hungerburgbahn with events throughout the winter including architectural tours every Tuesday at 10:30am in English and every Friday at 4:00pm in German until 6 April 2018.
