A number of unique and important buildings in the world designed by international scale architectural companies will be completed and will soon be opened in 2019. One of them is the work of Zaha Hadid, the new airport in Beijing. In addition, there is also the M + cultural museum in Hong Kong. Here’s the full work:
New airport in Beijing, China
This year the City of Beijing will open a new airport, designed by the late Zaha Hadid in collaboration with ADPI, an architectural company based in France, as the largest passenger terminal in the world. Located across from the capital city of China, the international airport named Beijing Daxing International Airport is estimated to hold 45 million passengers every year.
M +, Hong Kong
After a lot of preparation, finally a new museum in Hong Kong will open in 2019. People can enjoy the opening of M + which is dedicated to the fields of art, design, architecture and film. The museum was designed by Herzog and de Meuron to be one of the largest visual culture museums in the world, and is claimed to be a unique building that places Asia as the focus of design.
111 West 57th, United States
One of these impressive new skyscrapers will be completed in 2019 and designed to partner with SHoP Architects as the thinnest skyscraper in the world. The building was founded in a location called Billionaire’s Row in Manhattan, precisely at 11 West 57th, which offers views of Central Park and the entire city of Manhattan.
Panda House, Denmark
The project that will be spoiled this year is considered as one of the pleasant places because it is a new panda cage in the Copenhagen zoo, Denmark. Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is an architectural firm that designs yin-yang structures and creates a combination of closed and open spaces that include bamboo forests and “foggy” forests.
Children’s play area, China
This colorful playground will be a roof for kindergartens in Beijing. The design was designed by MAD, an architectural company in the city. The breadth of the playroom will give children the freedom to explore their imagination, something that is not easily found in one of the major cities in the world.
Tainan Axis, Taiwan
A large project designed by MVRDV, an urban architecture and design firm based in Rotterdam, will make shopping centers that were previously abandoned and replaced with concave-shaped parks, lakes, trails, trees and beaches. Remnants of old concrete structures, including square sections, will be left as evidence of the history of the site that was once abandoned.
Museum of Cystefos, Norway
BIG also handles other projects which are new art galleries in Kistefos Sculpture Park, near the City of Oslo, Norway. The building was described by Bjarke Ingels, the founder architect of BIG studio, as a “habitable bridge”, because it is a gallery located above the river.
Vessel, United States
The tower is made of 154 steps as a new tourist attraction in the development of Hudson Yards on Manhattan West Side. According to designer Thomas Heatherwick from Heatherwick Studio, the structure of the building is like a honeycomb that offers new views and perspectives to visitors.
The Shed, United States
Another building will be present on Manhattan’s West Side, namely The Shed, which will be a cultural exhibition venue. The design work of the Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group design studios will provide exhibition space, performances and areas to hold various art events.
Nhow Amsterdam RAI Hotel, Netherlands
OMA, the Dutch architectural institution based in Rotterdam, is following up the De Rotterdam complex which has been popular with a similar project in Amsterdam. The hotel is in triangular shape arranged in three layers. Later there will be 650 rooms, this building will be the largest hotel in the Netherlands.
