Montpellier, France is home to the Pierres Vives Building by Zaha Hadid. Signature Hadid deep curves characterize the structure, while a flowing yet balanced aesthetic dominates both the interior and exterior. Streamlined forms crafted in uncovered industrial mediums such as concrete and steel are softened by the fluidity of the building’s design, which boasts a layout intended to conduct visitors efficiently to their proper destinations. Nothing short of an architectural feat, the space utilizes 80,000 tons of concrete and 3,000 tons of steel — housing an auditorium, library and sports center within.
