Messner Mountain Museum by Zaha Hadid 1

The Messner Mountain Museum Corones by Zaha Hadid Architects in Kronplatz, South Tyrol, Italy, will be a 1000 sqm museum dedicated to the discipline mountaineering.

The new contemporary design museum is expected to finish in summer 2014 and will add a cultural and educational element to the popular Alpine destination. It will offer amazing 240-degree views across expansive mountain landscapes that include Zillertal Alps, the Dolomites and the Marmolada glacier. The sharp glass canopy resembles a fragment of glacial ice.
