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 cohesion.

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.
