This creation was designed as the new office headquarters for the SOHO group in Shanghai. Inspiration includes Chinese calligraphy and environmental consciousness. The four buildings add strokes of movement to Shanghai's ever changing city. Speaking of movement, have you and your mortgage adviser decided which futuristic residence you are moving to next yet?
The Bergisel Ski Jump started as a part of a refurbishment project of the Olympic Arena on Bergisel Mountain in Innsbruck, Austria. The colossal tower boasts a panoramic cafe and viewing terraces. The facility is equipped for both athletic and recreational needs, with twin lifts taking athletes and fans alike to the summit of this intimidating ski jump. Such a remote location must mean a pretty expensive home phone internet bundle.
This metallic structure is the epitome of futuristic architecture. From certain angles, it actually looks as if the building is levitating. Atypical of Hadid's designs, this monochrome creation is less flowy and more flat (though, it still does maintain some of the signature curves that define Hadid's design). The carefully planned soft edges are said to add 'lightness and fluidity' the the structure, differentiating it from its vertical and static backdrop.
The Haydar Aliyev Cultural Center in Baku, Azerbaijan is yet another Hadid creation. However, the building is considered more than just a building. Many consider the structure to play a crucial role in the city of Baku, with modern form and design elevating the entire neighborhood, pushing the city further toward urbanization. The building seems to flow out of the ground itself with fluid edges and a glass facade. Definitely one your mortgage adviser would enjoy.
The Madrid Civil Courts of Justice building is defined by its movement. The floating, rotating rings that envelop the structure add a dynamic nature to a slower, boring setting. Worried about the your electricity bill? Don't cancel your home phone internet bundle quite yet; the structure actually is equipped with many environmentally conscious features as well, included integrated photovoltaic cells and natural ventilation and temperature regulation.
