Goes Round and Round
It’s back to the future for the experts at Zaha Hadid Architects. This summer, the world-renowned firm announced that it has developed a digital architectural platform with AKT II and Hilson Moran Partnership to create homes for Roatán Próspera. The residential designs are a specific ecological and social response to the climate, terrain, and culture of Roatán, the largest of the Honduras Bay Islands in the Caribbean Sea. Learning from the wisdom of the past, these designs integrate the local vernacular tradition of timber construction, climatic appropriateness, and spatial experience with new digital design, engineering, and construction techniques.
