Discover The Incredible Super Yachts Designed by Zaha HadidMonday 3 December 2018
Discover The Incredible Super Yachts Designed by Zaha Hadid ⇒ Renowned architect Zaha Hadid was famously known for her distinctive designs of landmark buildings. But the belated Pritzker Prize winner has added yet another design to her impressive portfolio: a superyacht. Working with German builders Blohm + Voss, Hadid revealed plans for a fleet of futuristic vessels. The designs are what one would expect from Hadid: bold, organic, and original. The 420-foot Unique Circle, the largest of the yachts, comes with a zone with underwater viewing, and the bow has the ability to break through thick ice.
The exteriors are made up of a series of interwoven support beams, giving the superyachts Hadid’s signature touch of simple elegance. The clean white interiors were inspired by the ocean’s fluid form.
The Unique Circle superyacht comes with a swimming pool that is protected from natural elements by the deck. The master bedroom overlooks a jacuzzi on the deck.
“As a dynamic object that moves in dynamic environments, the design of a yacht must incorporate additional parameters beyond those for architecture—which all become much more extreme on water,” said the belated Hadid in a statement. “Each yacht is an engineered platform that integrates specific hydrodynamic and structural demands together with the highest levels of comfort, spatial quality, and safety.”
