Sustainable Civil Court at Valdebebas by Zaha Hadid

Civil Court for Madrid from Zaha Hadid

Designed by ‘the you know who’, the new civil courts building in Madrid will be the new landmark in the city. Coming with what called intelligent facade, the building utilizing double ventilation and photovoltaic cells on the roof.

The proposed 74,500 square meter (~800,000 square foot) building features a spiraling semi-circular atrium that overlooks an interior public courtyard. This space is meant to draw visitors and connect the building with the surrounding campus. The atrium also brings natural light down through the building and into court rooms.
