Zaha May be Gone, but She Lives on in the Construction of One Thousand Museum, by Now Showing Off Its Spectacular Curves
One Thousand Museum, designed by the recently deceased grande dame of architecture herself Zaha Hadid, has already reached the fifteenth floor, as multiple news sources have announced. These photos are from the project’s Facebook page, which also links to plenty of those articles. That rather rudimentary floor plate count is no biggie however, because you can now finally see the structural exoskeleton coursing up around that parametric facade, supporting it from just a few key points on the exterior. In other words, every passer can finally take in the architecture. We can all now see some of what Zaha envisioned all along, in solid concrete, and that’s pretty great.
