Zaha Hadid Architects unveils a new futuristic, high-tech floating building for Dubai. It's called the Opus Office Tower, and features a cubed-design with a large void in the center, splitting the building into two structures. They are connected by an cleverly concealed base, which makes the edifice appear as though it is floating above ground. Continue reading for a video, more pictures, and additional information.
Here's a bit more information about the beautiful structure:
The multi-purpose building is an eye-catching architectural fixture that is meant to complement the modern, Middle Eastern cityscape. It is also designed to present a different view in the day and night.
The project explains: "A pixelated reflective facade renders the cube full by day; by night it 'dematerializes' as light floods the void." It's sure to be an attraction for tourists and even more so given the additional project of designing the very first ME by Melia hotel in the Middle East within the complex. As of now, it is slated to be completed in 2016.
