UK architecture studio Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled its design for a sinuous, glass, 36-storey skyscraper, which will be built in Hong Kong at 2 Murray Road on what is reportedly the world’s most expensive plot.

The 36-storey skyscraper in Hong Kong’s central business district will be built alongside the Bank of China Tower by IM Pei, and in close proximity to the HSBC building by Foster + Partners.

It will replace a multistorey car park that was purchased by developer Henderson Land for HK$23.3 billion ($3 billion) in 2017, making it the world’s most expensive site according to numerous news outlets.

英國建築工作室Zaha Hadid Architects公佈了其設計,該建築是一座36層彎曲的玻璃摩天大樓,將在香港墨累路2號建造,據報導這是世界上最昂貴的地塊。

香港中央商務區的這座高36層的摩天大樓將由貝Pe銘(IM Pei)與中國銀行大廈(Bank of China Tower)一起建造,並由Foster + Partners緊鄰匯豐銀行大樓。

據眾多新聞媒體報導,它將取代開發商亨德森置地(Henderson Land)在2017年以233億港元(30億美元)購買的多層停車場,使其成為世界上最昂貴的站點。

Zaha Hadid Architects’ skyscraper will have a glass facade made from a series of curved segments that rise to form two sets of open-air balconies filled with trees.

Directly below the higher balcony, which is located around two-thirds of the way up the skyscraper, will be a planted sky garden. This space will also house a running track.

At the top of the skyscraper, an enclosed banqueting hall will have views across the city.

According to the studio, the building’s form was based on the shape of a bud from the Bauhinia plant, which was previously grown near the site and is the flower at the centre of the city’s flag.

扎哈·哈迪德建築師事務所(Zaha Hadid Architects)的摩天大樓將有玻璃幕牆,該幕牆由一系列彎曲的部分組成,這些部分上升形成兩組充滿樹木的露天陽台。

在高層陽台的正下方(位於摩天大樓上方三分之二的位置)將是一個種植的空中花園。 該空間還將容納一條跑道。



“The design reinterprets the structural forms and layering of a Bauhinia bud about to blossom,” said the studio.

“Known as the Hong Kong orchid tree, the Bauhinia x blakeana was first propagated in the city’s botanic gardens above the Murray Road site and its flowering bud features on Hong Kong’s flag.”


“紫荊x blakeana被譽為香港的蘭花樹,最初是在默里路遺址上方的城市植物園中繁殖的,其花蕾在香港的國旗上有特色。”

The main body of the skyscraper will be elevated above the ground and connected into the city’s network of raised pedestrian walkways, with a series of courtyards and gardens placed under the building.

“Echoing the organic forms of the natural world; the redevelopment connects with the adjacent public gardens and parks,” explained the studio.

“These tranquil outdoor areas flow into the generous communal spaces of the interior; the craftsmanship and precision of the curved glass facade enhancing this seamless connectivity between the building’s interiors and the surrounding gardens and city beyond.”




The skyscraper, which will be built with a high-tensile steel structure, has been designed to achieve a sustainability rating of LEED Platinum and the highest 3-Star rating in China’s Green Building Rating Program.

It will be clad in four-ply, double-laminated, double-curved insulated glass units and all floors will be naturally ventilated.



When it is complete, 2 Murray Road will be Zaha Hadid Architects’ second project in the city, along with the 78-metre-high Jockey Club Innovation Tower on the Hong Kong Polytechnic University campus, which opened in 2014.

Founded by the late Zaha Hadid in 1980, Zaha Hadid Architects is now led by Patrik Schumacher. The studio has recently revealed designs for a metro station in Moscow, a stadium in China and a housing complex in Honduras.

竣工後,Murray Road 2號將成為Zaha Hadid Architects在該市的第二個項目,以及香港理工大學校園中的78米高的賽馬會創新大樓(該大樓將於2014年開放)。

Zaha Hadid Architects由已故的Zaha Hadid於1980年創立,現在由Patrik Schumacher領導。 該工作室最近透露了莫斯科地鐵站,中國體育場和洪都拉斯住宅區的設計。
