“Morpheus combines its optimal arrangement with structural integrity and sculptural form. The design is intriguing as it makes no reference to traditional architectural typologies,” explained Viviana Muscettola, project director of Zaha Hadid Architects, as she adds, “Macau’s buildings have previously referenced architecture styles from around the world. Morpheus has evolved from its unique environment and site conditions as a new architecture, expressly of this city.”

The 40-storey building was first imagined in 2012 by ZHA. It is formed by two circulation cores that connect at the base through a podium. Taking the shape of windows are voids carved into rectangular blocks, which provides mesmerizing views of the city. Its structure features fluid forms due to the use of hard minerals and traditional Chinese jade carving techniques.

The rippling in the building’s shape caused by the three holes in the glazing connecting the north and south facades also creates unique spaces within the building. The luxury hotel also presents twelve glass elevators which offer panoramic views of the sculpted interiors of Morpheus. The hotel features an impressive total amount of 770 guest rooms, suites and sky villas.
