A series of voids and sky bridges cut through the center of this massive, 40-story hotel and casino by Zaha Hadid Architects.
Already construction, the web-like structure will be the fifth hotel at Melco Crown Entertainment‘s City of Dreams resort in Cotai, Macau, on the western side of the Pearl River Delta across from Hong Kong.
“The design combines dramatic public spaces and generous guest rooms with innovative engineering and formal cohesion,” explains Zaha Hadid Architects on their website.
In addition to 780 hotel rooms, the complex will boast a number of gaming rooms, meeting and event facilities, restaurants, a spa, and sky pool. Total size: A whopping 1,614,600 square feet.
The project is expected to be completed in 2017.
