Fly-through animation of the Bee'ah Headquarters by Zaha Hadid

This movie shows an animated fly-through of the headquarters building for waste management company Bee’ah, in Sharjah, UAE by Zaha Hadid Architects following the 2013 international competition.

First revealed in December, the firm’s 7,000-square-metre building will occupy a space adjacent to Bee’ah’s vast waste management centre in the United Arab Emirates.

The movie shows a curved structure shimmering in the heat of the desert. Cladding materials for the project have been selected for their ability to reflect the sun’s rays, and help control the temperature inside the building. The curves of the building are modelled on the shape of sand dunes, designed to help the structure withstand the extreme weather conditions experienced on the site.

“The formal composition of the new Bee’ah Headquarters building has been informed by its desert context as a series of intersecting dunes orientated to optimise the prevailing Shamal winds, and designed to provide its interiors with high-quality daylight and views whilst limiting the quantity of glazing exposed to the harsh sun,” said a statement from Zaha Hadid.
