With 36 projects in 21 countries under construction or in detailed design development, Zaha Hadid Architects is committed to continuing this progress. One of the projects to be completed this year is Port House in Antwerp, due date is September 22.

With 12 kilometers of docks, the Port of Antwerp is Europe’s second largest shipping port, handling more than 15,000 sea trade ships and 60,000 inland barges each year. The new Port House preserves and repurposes an abandoned 95-year-old fire station into a new headquarters for the port, consolidating the 500 employees who currently work in many separate buildings, giving them views to the port’s docks and berths.
