Zaha hadid’s Melbourne Towers : Miss or hit

The Zaha hadid’s tower is arguably the most debated building in Victoria right now. The firm’s first project in Melbourne, the tower is to be sited on ‘600 collins street on the western boundary.

54 storey tower comprises 420 apartments, offices, retail and public spaces, with the overall arrangement characterized by its elegant colonnades of ‘stacked vases’. Designboom

‘it’s pleasing to see a project of this quality proposed for melbourne and see a strong architectural response within the framework of the interim controls,’ says planning minister richard wynne.

But for most residents  of Melbourne the proposed tower is a monstrosity.A travesty  to the beautiful order of buildings in Victoria. The most complaints are about her style of architecture, which is said will be a misfit with the current facade of the Melbourne CBD. But that didn’t  stop city planners as the  building construction was recently greenlited.

The tower would come with the least green ideas in building construction. With savings to energy, water ( which there is a serious shortage of  here) and a reduced carbon footprint.  It would carry 350 bicycle parking spaces and bays for electric vehicles are included within the planning. Below are the design photo. what do you think?  Most of us at Ausquery  think it is a good idea, Leave your comments below.
