Zaha Hadid Architects has formed an alliance with Chinese group Arcplus and US-based Wilson Associates to offer ‘next-generation design’ to clients.
The trio will collaborate on research initiatives as well as working together to create a single port of call for interior and exterior design and engineering.
Zaha Hadid Architects said: ‘We see this alliance as a continuation of global best practice, pioneering research and innovation, where each of the three firms’ individual strengths will deliver the most ambitious projects.
‘The combination of design excellence, resources, knowledge and sector leading expertise enables us to deliver more sophisticated, high-performance and high-value projects.’
Architecture, design and engineering consultant Arcplus said: ‘This team of global experts will be at the cutting edge of architectural and engineering technology, digital design and energy efficiency.’
Dallas-based interior design practice Wilson Associates said the trio would offer ‘next-generation design’, adding: ‘Together, we will work to collaborate on future proposals and provide advanced and practical solutions for international clients.’
The alliance will be formalised at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Shanghai, followed by celebratory events in London and New York City.
