    Opus by Omniyat 05.jpg

    From the album: The Opus by Omniyat

    Home to the new ME Dubai hotel, the Opus is located in the Burj Khalifa district adjacent to Downtown Dubai and Business Bay on the Dubai Water Canal. Exploring the balance between solid and void, opaque and transparent, interior and exterior, the design was presented by Zaha Hadid in 2007 and is the only hotel in which she created both its architecture and interiors. Spanning 84,300 square metres (907,400 square feet), the Opus was designed as two separate towers that coalesce into a singular whole—taking the form of a cube. The cube has been ‘eroded’ in its centre, creating a free-form void that is an important volume of the design in its own right. The two halves of the building on either side of the void are linked by a four-storey atrium at ground level and also connected by an asymmetric 38 metre wide, three-storey bridge 71 metres above the ground. “The precise orthogonal geometries of the Opus’ elemental glass cube contrast dramatically with the fluidity of the eight-storey void at its centre,” explained Christos Passas, project director at Zaha Hadid Architects.

    Expo 2020 - Terra

    The structure of the Sustainability Pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020 is now complete. The Sustainability Pavilion names as Terra represents the planet Earth. The pavilion will take visitors on an immersive and emotional journey through the wonders of the natural world and teach them the way to create a better, more sustainable future. The pavilion, approximately covers 25,000 sqm, with 6,300 sqm of exhibition area. It has been designed as net-zero energy and net-zero water building, which means the pavilion generates all of its own power and water needs. The pavilion has more than 1,050 solar panels installed, arranged on the 130-metre wide canopy and on the locally-designed energy trees that dot the landscape and rotate to face the sun, like a sunflower.

    British architecture studio Asif Khan has designed the Expo Entry Portals, gateways to the Dubai Expo 2020 woven from carbon fibre to create 21-metre-high mashrabiya-style lattices. The three Expo Entry Portals are all 30 metres long and sit on top of bridges spanning roads around the site of the World Expo to be held in Dubai in 2021.

    Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion, designed by UK-based Grimshaw Architects – is meant to meet the highest available accreditation for sustainable architecture – LEED Platinum certification. The building aims to be net-zero energy and net-zero water throughout its lifetime of operation, while minimising material environmental impacts from construction. The building also aims to act as a living laboratory that will inspire visitors to live more sustainably.
