Zaha Hadid Architects Reveals Crystal-Inspired Skyscraper Plan in Neom | Saudi Arabia

Zaha Hadid Architects have shared their plans for an impressive 330-meter-tall skyscraper in the Trojena ski resort, part of the Neom development in Saudi Arabia. Read more about the project below on SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

Unique Design

The skyscraper's design is quite distinctive and has been compared to a crystal. It will be situated on a mountain, offering a stunning view of an artificial lake. The aim is for it to be an essential part of the Trojena area, which is believed to be planned by LAVA architects.

Crystalline Appearance

The skyscraper's appearance is said to be like a crystal, with lots of columns narrowing down to a point at the top. Although we don't know all the details about what it will be used for, it's expected to have shops, restaurants, exhibition spaces, and observation decks at different heights. They're also planning a cable car to connect it to the lakeside area.

Symbol of Trojena

The skyscraper is intended to be a symbol of Trojena, which is one of the four development areas in Neom. Trojena is around 50 kilometers from the Gulf of Aqaba in the mountains of Saudi Arabia. It's going to be a tourist destination with lots of things to do, including year-round skiing, adventure sports, music concerts, a high-tech observatory, and even a man-made lake.

The big and kind of argumentative Neom project was introduced about two years ago. It includes four different areas: The Line: This is like a city, but it's very narrow, only 200 meters wide, and super long, 170 kilometers. Oxagon: This is a new kind of city for making things. Trojena: This is a place in the mountains that's meant for tourists who want to enjoy the mountains. Sindalah: This is an island in the Red Sea that's also meant for tourists.
