Morpheus at @CityOfDreamsMacau has been awarded the Prix Versailles 2019 for Central & Northeast Asia in the Hotels category.
The @PrixVersailles celebrates inspiration, progress and inclusion with its mission to transform architecture and design into tools for sustainable ecological, societal and cultural development.
Twelve Prix Versailles world titles will be selected from the regional winners and announced at the World Finale being held at UNESCO’s headquarters, Paris on 12 September 2019.
.
Morpheus was designed as a vertical extrusion of the site’s existing abandoned foundations for a tower that did not progress; using this rectangular footprint to define a 40-storey building of two internal vertical circulation cores connected at podium & roof levels where the many guest amenities were required. 
Three horizontal vortices generate the voids through the central atrium and define the hotel’s spectacular interior public spaces. In-between these voids, a series of bridges create unique spaces for the restaurants, bars and guest lounges by renowned chefs including @AlainDucasse & @PierreHermeOfficial. 
Working with @BuroHappoldEngineering, #ZahaHadid Architects designed the building’s structure to optimise the hotel’s interiors. The world’s first free-form high-rise exoskeleton, its rich pattern of structural members at lower levels progresses upwards to a less dense grid of lighter members at its summit.
.
@TIME Magazine listed Morpheus Hotel as one of the World’s Greatest Places based on key factors including quality, originality, innovation, sustainability and influence. Morpheus was also voted @ArchDaily’s Building of the Year’ (BOTY) in the hospitality / commercial category while Popular Science Magazine included the hotel in their list ‘Best of What New’.

#HappyBirthdayHighline
.
Congratulations to @HighLineNYC. This week #NewYork’s High Line celebrates 10 years since opening to the public, and 20 years since the Friends of the High Line began advocating for the abandoned freight rail line to be transformed into a public park at a time when the historic structure was under the threat of demolition.
.
Today the park welcomes over 7 million visitors a year with Friends of the High Line organizing more than 450 public programs and activities for local communities.
.
There is a powerful urban dynamic along the High Line - a layered civic realm that has developed over generations and in many iterations. @520w28 by #ZahaHadid Architects conveys this contextual relationship, applying new ideas and concepts to create the latest evolution of the site’s rich history. Its steel façade carries the spirit of Chelsea’s industrial past—brushed and tinted by hand to resonate with the adjacent structures of the #HighLine and its #NYC neighbourhood. This detailed workmanship by @MCohenAndSons continues the venerable tradition within New York’s historic #architecture of enhancing the public realm

@ZahaHadidDesign’s reinterpretation of @LouisVuitton’s classic Bucket bag will be presented within the new ‘Louis Vuitton X’ exhibition in Los Angeles that showcases more than 180 works from LV’s archive.
.
‘Louis Vuitton X’ will exhibit heritage pieces comprising early 20th century trunks and perfume bottles, together with monogram bags reworked by #ZahaHadid and others including Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Cindy Sherman and Frank Gehry.
.
Zaha Hadid’s 2006 reinterpretation of the iconic #LV Bucket Bag employs extrusion and distortion to create a new family of hybrid typologies – a pochette and clutch that sit within the larger bucket bag which has been ergonomically formed to be worn on the shoulder. Hadid’s design is an ensemble of interchangeable parts which can be rearranged and combined for different occasions.

‘Louis Vuitton X’ exhibition
Late June until mid-September
468 N. Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, USA

#SundayStaircase: Detail of the auditorium stairs in oak at the Heydar Aliyev Center #Baku – photo by @HuftonAndCrow.
.
Built on the site of a Soviet munitions factory, the centre’s architecture embodies an enlightened philosophical framework. Its fluid forms promise to open and engage Azeri culture with an act of attraction rather than imposition. 
External surfaces rise from their surroundings to define a series of exhibition and performance spaces within, inviting the urban fabric of the city into the heart of building.
Named ‘Design of the Year’ by London’s @DesignMuseum, the centre was cited as a masterwork of invention and execution,” and since opening, has hosted exhibitions and performances by Azeri and international artists. On his visit to Baku, Pope Francis addressed local residents and religious leaders in the centre’s theatre.

@ZahaHadidDesign will present collections in #Australia for the first time at @DENFAIR, 20-22 June #Melbourne.
. 
With each new collection, Zaha Hadid Design continues Hadid’s inventive methodology and process; sharing #ZahaHadid’s story and its significance within the dialogue of contemporary design. The studio’s portfolio encompasses 40 years of design research and is expressed in the pioneering designs for lighting, furniture and finishes exhibited in Melbourne:
- Moon System Sofa for @BeBItalia
- Aria and Avia Chandeliers for @Slamp_Official
- Quad Table for @CitcoItaly
- Liquid Glacial Stools (pictured) for @DavidGillGallery
- Cellular Rug for @RoyalThai_ Carpets 
In conjunction with these collaborations, Zaha Hadid Design’s own collections will be featured at DENFAIR, including the new Swirl Bowl and Cell Centrepiece.
.
Centred around themes found in Hadid’s repertoire, Zaha Hadid Design has created a stand at #DENFAIR2019 that encompasses abstraction and intersection; elements often conveyed within her architecture. Conceived as two continuous loops or ribbons that intersect and peel apart to reveal an exaggerated perspective, the structure expresses a sense of dynamism with intersecting elements that define the space.
.
Panel discussion June 20, 3:30pm: In a moderated talk, Zaha Hadid Design’s co-directors Maha Kutay and Woody Yao will outline the studio’s development by Zaha Hadid from the 1980’s until present. .

‘Paper Castles’ exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum.

An intricate paper model of the Morpheus Hotel exoskeleton is within the ‘Paper Castles’ exhibition at the @VAMuseum for @LondonFestivalOfArchitecture.
.
‘Paper Castles’ at the V&A’s Architecture Gallery imagines alternative future architecture floating above the past. Fifteen practices have been invited to create a paper model to sit on top of cases housing models from the museum’s collection. These new models sit in dialogue with those underneath, building on this history to project into the future.
.
Responding to a model of a pavilion within the Alhambra, Zaha Hadid Architects created a paper model of the Morpheus Hotel’s exoskeleton in Macau.
.
In Morpheus’ exoskeleton, the structure becomes the architectural expression of the façade. Therefore, the geometrical complexity increases proportionally to the structural challenges. A similar gradient takes place at Alhambra’s pavilion evolving from the columns at the base to the vault, where the fractal-like intricacy of the muqarnas blend architecture, mathematics and art.
.
Other practices contributing to the exhibition include: OMMX, Hayatsu Architects, Office S&M, Madelon Vriesendorp, Interrobang, RESOLVE, Mobile Studio, WUH architecture, Shahed Saleem, Zaha Hadid Architects, PUP architects, Sarah Wigglesworth, Prince + Selasi, Office Sian.

Designed in response the environment of the Riyadh Plateau to minimise energy consumption, KAPSARC opened in 2017 and received LEED Platinum certification by the US Green Building Council.
.
KAPSARC is a non-profit institution for research into the most effective use of energy for social wellbeing. Developing policies to reduce the environmental impact & costs of energy supply and enabling practical solutions to use energy more efficiently, KAPSARC brings together experts from around the world to tackle energy challenges; freely sharing its analytical knowledge.
.
In nature, hexagonal prismatic honeycomb structures use the least amount of material to create a lattice of cells within any given volume. This natural principle determined KAPSARC’s composition as an amalgamation of crystalline forms that emerges from the desert landscape, evolving to best respond to the environment.
. 
Presenting a solid, protecting shell to the harsh sunlight from the south, the campus opens to north and west; encouraging prevailing winds to cool the campus during temperate months via a series of sheltered courtyards that bring softly-controlled daylight into the interior.
. 
Orientated for the sun & wind conditions, the crystalline forms of KAPSARC’s prismatic cells gain in height towards the south, west, and east to shield internal spaces from direct sunlight. ‘Wind-catchers’ integrated within the roof profiles direct prevailing winds from the north into each courtyard for cooling.
. 
KAPSARC was named KSA’s ‘smartest’ building in the Honeywell Smart Building Awards programme, based on criteria that include environmental sustainability, safety & productivity.

#SundayStaircase: the ‘floating’ staircase at @zahahadidgallery was installed in 2013. Beautiful photo by @thismintymoment. 
Each suspended tread of this staircase is articulated as a separate ribbon cast from Ductal®, an ultra-high performance concrete with exceptional structural qualities. The tensile strength of Ductal® uses minimal material, allowing each tread to remain relatively thin. All treads were cast from a single adjustable mould engineered by Il Cantiere.
