The Opus building was opened in January 2018 and designed by Iraqi born Zaha Hadid who died in 2016. It's her only building in Dubai. She was the first female architect to win the Prizker Architecture Prize. She is also responsible for the London Olympic Aquatics Centre.
The building features two glass towers linked by a steel and glass bridge at the top and a ground floor podium. It has 56,000 square feet of office space, nightclub in the basement, restaurants, ME Dubai by Melia and a boutique hotel. Zaha Hadid personally designed all the interiors and exteriors of the 95 meter building.
All I can think about is how long it takes to clean all this glass, especially in the nooks and crannies where the sand gathers.
