Zaha Hadid - Regium Waterfront

Though I'm not a super Zaha Hadid fan, her recently revealed Regium Waterfront project looks interesting. The complex includes the Museum of the Mediterranean History and a performing arts center for the Italian city of Reggio Calabria.

I like how the building mimics the boats in the harbor and how the sleek form reflects the serenity of the water.

Via Zaha on BDOnline:
"The project will be a gathering place for people of all ages - presenting the Mediterranean’s rich and diverse history with visual and performing arts to enhance the cultural vitality of the city," she said.

She added: "This connection between culture and public life is critical - as what differentiates museums of the 21st century from the previous century is that the client is no longer simply one patron. The client is the public - it's many people."
