Zaha Hadid Is Actually Building This Futuristic Tower At China’s Shenzhen Bay

Widely regarded as the greatest female architect in contemporary architecture, the late Zaha Hadid left behind a prolific portfolio with notable works that included everything from the BMW Central Building in Leipzig to the Olympic Aquatics Center in London. In the wake of her untimely passing, the firm has taken up the torch, doing its best to produce pieces that honor the ‘queen of curves’ and ensure that her legacy lives on.

Zaha Hadid Architects’ latest project is the winning bid for China’s Tower C design competition. Located at the Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base, it’s being built to serve both businesses and individuals alike. As such, inside its shapely dual-tower design, it’ll house new office spaces and international conference rooms as well as residential developments and entertainment areas. And while it stands nearly 1,312 feet tall, it’s been designed to seamlessly integrate into its surroundings, with a terraced landscape that extends up inside and a public transport interchange found that’ll be in the ground below. As with other ZHA works, it’ll also feature plenty of sustainability provisions, such as solar panels to harvest the sun’s energy and ventilation registers to draw in natural airflow.
