ZAHA HADID DOES IT AGAIN !
Following an architecture competition, Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), has been awarded first place in the design for a new rail terminal in Estonia and if the rendering are anything to go by its like nothing we've ever seen before, unless of course you count sci-fi movies!
The design for the Ülemiste terminal in Estonia's capital Tallinn is part of the Rail Baltica system, which is a planned 870-km (540-mile) electrified railway that will connect Estonia to the Lithuanian-Poland border.
Zaha Hadid Architects designed the Ülemiste terminal as a connecting public bridge integrating access to bus, tram, and rail lines.
No timescale for the construction of the rail line has been revealed but the Zaha Hadid Architects said they have incorporated a modular structural system which will be built in stages to enable ongoing operations of the rail line throughout construction, designed and planned to BREEAM benchmarks and guidelines.
Zaha Hadid Architects is no stranger to designing futuristic buildings they have designed the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre, Baku, Azerbaijan, the City of Dreams Morpheus Hotel Tower, Macau, China and upcoming King Abdullah metro station, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
