Zaha Hadid Architects designs crystalline skyscraper above theTROJENA ski resort


UK studio Zaha Hadid Architects has designed a 330-metre-tall skyscraper as part of the TROJENA ski resort at NEOM in Saudi Arabia. On display as part of the NEOM stand at the Cityscape conference in Riyadh, the 330-metre-tall skyscraper will form part of TROJENA, which is being masterplanned by German studio LAVA architects.

It will stand on a mountain opposite the main ski area, overlooking an artificial lake that will form the centrepiece of the leisure development. Renders of the skyscraper show a crystal-like structure made of numerous columns that tappers towards the peak. It will be connected to the lakeside development by a cable car. Although full details of the building's use have not yet been revealed, the tower will contain shops, restaurants and exhibition spaces along with observation decks at three different levels.
