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.
