Zaha Hadid, an Iraqi-British architect who received the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004 (the first woman to do so) has designed a concept for the superyacht of the future with length of 128 meters. With the construction which resembles a skeleton and luxurious interior, this yacht is a new item on the shopping list of billionaires. The woman behind Akvatiks center in London where the Olympic Games held last year, has designed her first spacecraft-like yacht.
The yacht’s length is 128 meters and is part of the Unique Circle Yachts – a family of five individual 90m yachts, designed specifically for the German company “Blohm + Voss“. The JAZZ yacht, the first of five in the range, has a sharp solid prow and becomes more open towards the back. The other four boats will be customised to meet the requirements of their owners.
“Each yacht is a kind of platform that combines hydrodynamic and structural requirements with the highest levels of comfort, safety and quality,” – said Zaha Hadid. “As a dynamic object that moves in dynamic environments, the design of a yacht must incorporate additional parameters beyond those for architecture – which all become much more extreme on water.”
Architect will participate in the preparations for the Olympics 2020th in Tokyo. She also designed the museum in Rome and Glasgow.
