Engineering the World’s Most COMPLEX Office Building - #35
This week we’re looking at the story of a star architect’s final masterpiece, of a gravity-defying feat of engineering, and of how a 1,500 year old city is facing up to its 21st century destiny – that’s right, we’re looking at Zaha Hadid's "Port House" in Antwerp, Belgium.
Later in the show, we talk about the sad passing of A. Eugene Kohn at the age of 92. Kohn co-founded the legendary practice Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and we debate some of the practice's best projects. Also, with some disappointing HS2 news, Fred gives us his biggest rant ever! Lastly, we look at a new 10-storey office block that's set to rise on London’s Southbank designed by Bjarke Ingels Group.
P.S. don't forget about our Buildots live event on 29 March!
We end the show with a lovely Apple Podcasts review from "Alex Mathie"
