If Spiders Built Super Yachts.

For decades, architect Zaha Hadid has been internationally renowned for her daring landmark buildings, such as the Heydar Aliyev Center in Azerbaijan and the Dominion Office Building in Moscow. Yet, what’s lesser known from the Pritzker Prize winner was a structure that’s not meant for land: a superyacht. Working with German builders Blohm + Voss, Hadid’s designs was what one would expect from the virtuoso: bold, organic, and sort of looks like a drunken spider was way too into boating.

The 420-foot Unique Circle, the largest of the yachts, comes with a zone with underwater viewing, and the bow has the ability to break through thick ice. The exteriors are made up of a series of interwoven support beams, giving the superyachts Hadid’s signature touch of simple elegance.
