Nordpark Railway Station Innsbruck 2007
Another signature of Zaha Hadid and her practice ZHA, apart from the free flowing curves made possible by computer design is her use of double curved glass similar to the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London and her use of innovative technology such as the sort of adapted funicular railway design and levelling system to cope with a 46° slope. This marries with the nearby Bergisel Ski Jump. As well as being functional it evokes metaphorically the ice cold and the snow capped mountains. A technique used much in evoking Zaha Hadid musically: metaphor
