40-storey Macau marvel features ‘world-first’ free-form high-rise exoskeleton
Zaha Hadid Architects’ arch-like Morpheus Hotel at Macau’s City of Dreams resort has opened for business.
The 780-room building, which came with a pricetag of US $1.1bn - £830m at today’s exchange rates - features a seven-storey atrium and is essentially two internal cores connected at the podium and upper storeys. Floors are serviced by 12 glass lifts.
The building features what ZHA and project engineer BuroHappold describe as “the world’s first free-form high-rise exoskeleton”, which removes the need for internal walls or interior columns.
