Zaha Hadid has won the competition to design the headquarters of Antwerp Port Authority in Belgium. Covering 12,000 m² of floorspace, the project is expected to be completed in 2013 and will accommodate 500 people when finish. The construction will spend 31.5 million euros excluding VAT and architect’s fees.

The jury/board of directors finally opted for the proposal by Zaha Hadid Architects, because:

* the design preserves as much as possible of the dignity of the present building as a monument, adding a new object to the site;
* the board and its advisors had confidence in a team such as Zaha Hadid Architects being able to further develop the project so as to achieve a high quality end result that can act as a “shop window” for the Port Authority.
