Viviana Muscettola masterclass on Morpheus

Join Viviana Muscettola,
Director at Zaha Hadid
Architects on the 20th of May
when she hosts a Master Class for
Designwire on Morpheus Hotel & Resort at City of Dreams in Macau.

The 40-storey, 150,000m² Morpheus tower combines dramatic
public spaces and generous guest rooms with inventive engineering and formal

Designed as a vertical extrusion of the site’s existing
abandoned foundations for a condominium tower that did not progress; this
rectangular footprint was used to define a 40-storey building of two internal
vertical circulation cores at podium and roof levels where the hotel’s many
guest amenities were required.

Three horizontal vortices generate the voids through the
central atrium and define the hotel’s spectacular interior public spaces.
In-between these voids, a series of bridges create unique spaces for the
restaurants, bars & lounges.

Working with BuroHappold Engineering, Zaha Hadid Architects
designed the building’s structure to optimise the hotel’s interiors. The
world’s first free-form high-rise exoskeleton, its rich pattern of structural
members at lower levels progresses upwards to a less dense grid of lighter
members at its summit.
