Messner Mountain Museum Corones by Zaha Hadid

Published Aug 11, 2015

Starchitect Zaha Hadid collaborated with renowned mountaineer Reinhold Messner to build his latest museum at the summit of Mount Kronplatz.

“Open to the public for the first time in late July, the museum sits 7,000 feet above the sea level and is made of glass-reinforced fibre concrete, which is pale grey on the outside to mimic the outer surface of the mountain and a shade darker on the inside to match the tones of anthracite coal buried underground. Three ‘concrete canopies’ emerge from the ground like giant shards of rock, offering stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges to visitors inside.”
