Zaha Hadid Architects has signed an agreement with Hyperloop Italia

Hyperloop Italia

Hyperloop® transports passengers at very high speed safely, economically and sustainably. Using passive magnetic levitation technology powered entirely by renewables, Hyperloop® propels passenger and cargo capsules through low-pressure tubes to minimise friction, requiring only a fraction of the energy needed to power traditional modes of public transport.

Combining energy from renewable sources with regenerative braking systems makes Hyperloop’s infrastructure capable of producing more energy than it consumes. The climate-controlled passenger capsules travel in sealed tubes and remain unaffected by external conditions.

Patrik Schumacher, Principal of ZHA, said: “We are looking forward to collaborating with Hyperloop Italia; marrying transformative architecture, engineering and urban planning with the most efficient and sustainable transport network to significantly improve accessibility, connectivity, and well-being in our cities.”

Bibop Gresta, founder and CEO of Hyperloop Italia as well as co-founder of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HyperloopTT), declared: “We are certain that Zaha Hadid Architects is the right partner to allow Hyperloop Italia to promote design excellence in architecture. Their decades of global experience in civic and transport infrastructure will be essential to ensure that Hyperloop Italia’s transport hubs are intuitive to navigate, sustainable and fully integrated within their urban contexts.” Source and image Courtesy of Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA).
