If I had the slightest bit of interest in numbers I probably would have became an architect, but that wasn’t to be. I still love interesting buildings, inside and out, so I’ll probably do more architecture and design posts. Zaha Hadid Architects are finalists in the Best Tall Buildings Award run by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat with two buildings in Asia. The Jockey Club Innovation Tower at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Wangjing SOHO in Beijing China.
Best Tall Building awards new buildings in the Asia and Australasia regions that make an extraordinary contribution to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and for achieving sustainability at the broadest level.
Here’s some pictures of the Zaha Hadid building in Hong Kong, called the Jockey Club Innovation Tower (JCIT). It’s occupied by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design and the Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation. It’s 78 meters high, about 256 ft, and can hold 1800 students and staff.
