Opus Tower by Zaha Hadid

Hadid has described the Opus as one of her keynote designs. The floor plan for the development is 1.7million sq ft and has over 22 stories of commercial and retail office space. The design includes 17 levels of office space, four levels of retail, a top floor relaxation area and roof garden as well as a five-story basement. The new 22-storey cubed shaped mixed use building has been described as setting new standards in a global context and makes a unique contribution to the business bay section of Dubai. Construction on the project is due to start later this year with an expected completion date of 2010.

  • I don’t really like this one as well. Iit looks like someone dropped a huge drop of acid in the middle of the building and it melted everything it touched until it lost its kick. This building is designed to impress but thats it

      i completely agree and I see this as a problem with a lot of the buildings in the Dubai area; very flashy but no substance…..

  • Gabriel says:

    Kinda reminds me of an ice-cube. For a large piece of architecture, it features enough organic touches as to not make it too monolithic or intimidating. Almost like a large natural rock formation.

    I really like this one.
