Pritzker Prize winning starchitect Zaha Hadid is known for her incredible buildings but she’s added to her impressive portfolio with these super yacht designs. German builders Blohm + Voss recently revealed their collaboration with the designer for a mini-fleet of futuristic seafaring vessels. The largest, the 420-foot Unique Circle, will come with an area for underwater viewing and will have a swimming pool that is protected from natural elements by the deck. And if you have any “Titanic” concerns, never-fear – its hull can break through ice! Hadid said in a statement,
“As a dynamic object that moves in dynamic environments, the design of a yacht must incorporate additional parameters beyond those for architecture—which all become much more extreme on water. Each yacht is an engineered platform that integrates specific hydrodynamic and structural demands together with the highest levels of comfort, spatial quality, and safety.”
Hey, future Powerball billionaire, you could forgo any land residence at all and spend your days touring the globe on one of these beauties.
