+ Project description
This year, ZAHA HADID is the leading guest architect for “Barbara Cappochin” International Biennial of Architecture with a personal show set up in the Palazzo della Ragione in Padova, Italy.
The initiative is promoted by the Barbara Cappochin Foundation and the Chamber of Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Conservationists of the Province of Padua with the Veneto Regional Government and Padua City Council, in partnership with the International Union of Architects (U.I.A) and the National Council of Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Conservationists (C.N.A.P.P.C.).
Zaha Hadid has designed a retail and business center in the town of Jesolo, Italy, currently on display in Palazzo della Ragione in Padova.
The new Jesolo Magica shopping mall and office complex is divided into two zones that are located halfway between the town centre and the Jesolo waterfront. Both areas give onto Via Roma Destra, a strategic position making the project a major gateway to the town. In the area to the west of Via Roma, the project envisages the creation of a retail centre on two floors surrounded by areas for public use and car parking.
This zone will also house a gym and nightclub. To the east of Via Roma will stand a new hotel with a conference centre and health spa; the project will be completed by offices and a restaurant offering panoramic views.
Like the petals of a flower, the volumes that comprise the Jesolo Magica retail centre open up around a central space; here, the main axes of circulation traverse a gallery that has been transformed into a piazza. The hotel, which forms the final “petal”, frames the view beyond the road and enjoys views over the Venice lagoon.
The retail and congress centre, Jesolo Magica, dialogs with the precious territorial environment, thanks to its sinuosity and long entrances allows natural light and natural environment go dip through the petals-buildings, which became observation point towards the Lagoon.
