Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street Wins Architecture Award

Zaha Hadid continues to shelve adult accolades many could usually dream of, even after her untimely death. Today, her organisation announced that a Society of American Registered Architects (SARA)’s New York Council has named Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street a Project of a Year.

Hadid’s initial New York project, a High Line–adjacent condo building has served as a vital sign of a starchitect’s legacy, a structure that, in Hadid’s consultant manner, both manifests her unaccompanied character and relates to a surroundings. “It’s sculpture inhabited,” Tiago Correia, a U.S. executive of Zaha Hadid Architects, pronounced of a building in an talk with AD on a central opening. “We done a building that really deliberately blurs a lines between art and architecture. That’s a approach to compensate reverence to a location, to Zaha’s work, and to a burgeoning lifestyle in a area.”

Critics and enthusiasts comparison have taken notice, and SARA’s fame is explanation of that. The society, that operates 11 councils in 8 states, was shaped with a goal of compelling togetherness among architects; a sign is “Architect assisting architect.” At a annual awards ceremony, a New York legislature also presented awards to System Architects for 187 Franklin Street and to Diller Scofidio + Renfro Architects and Gensler for the Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center during Columbia University.
