Zaha Hadid’s Crystalline Port Authority Arrives in Antwerp

Rendering to reality Zaha Hadids crystalline port authority arrives in antwerp

“Zaha Hadid Architects has topped off its crystalline addition to an old fire station in the port city of Antwerp. As Europe’s second largest port, the new structure, informed by detailed historical research and analysis of the site and existing building was designed to provide space for the increasing demands for a new port authority. Bolstered atop the Hanseatic Beaux-Arts building, Hadid’s prismatic intervention perches precariously like a vast iceberg, balancing on a massive concrete buttress and cantilevering beyond the southern edge of the building.”

Below are some photos of the actual works
