A Transluscent Addition to the Hong Kong Skyline

Hong Kong Polytechnic University needed a major image boost. So administrators hired hot shot London-based architect Zaha Hadid to create a brand new building, the Innovation Tower, which will house its design school. Starting in 2011, students will disappear into the spaceship-like main lobby via escalator and continue up to four stories of translucent workspaces illuminated with oddly shaped skylights. More pics after the jump.
