Inspirational Buildings to Watch in 2018

We are fascinated by new buildings, by monumental forms and by beautiful structures.  Azure Magazine has done a shortlist of architectural works called “Buildings to Watch in 2018”, which matches these characteristics.

We selected three of these works that seem especially interesting as a source of inspiration for us:

  • Morpheus Hotel, by Zaha Hadid Architects.  Located in Macau, it will open during 2018. We can describe it as an organic structure within a solid geometry. Hadid’s architecture always looked for ways to defy the traditional flat surfaces. (Above these lines)
  • Ninjing Green Towers, by Stefan Boeri. Vertical woods against pollution. This is not the first time that this studio produces a similar idea.  They will be planified in conjunction with other green zones of the city to create a network of spaces. These will generate biological urban habitats.   
  • Victoria & Albert Museum of Design Dundee, by Kengo Kuma.  It’s Scotland’s first museum dedicated to design.  Opening by September 2018, it is built by the sea with a completely asymmetric and sculptural structure. This museum is made of cast stone panels.

Have a look at the rest of the selection.  You might find it creatively stimulating!
