Zaha Hadid has designed a countless number of magnificent projects over the last few years. Continuing her impressive streak, the world-renowned architect recently completed the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, whose main feature is a zinc-clad roof that zig-zags its way into the night's sky.

The Riverside Museum overlooks the River Clyde and houses over 3,000 transport-related exhibits. The museum positions itself symbolically and functionally as open and fluid, to ensure it is profoundly interlinked with not only Glasgow’s history, but also its future.

“Through architecture, we can investigate future possibilities yet also explore the cultural foundations that have defined the city," says Hadid. "The Riverside Museum is a fantastic and truly unique project where the exhibits and building come together at this prominent and historic location on the Clyde to enthuse and inspire all visitors. The design, combining geometric complexity with structural ingenuity and material authenticity, continues Glasgow’s rich engineering traditions and will be a part of the city’s future as a center of innovation.”
