The 21-story residential building wears a wave-like façade made up of a series of panels, which minimized construction costs while accentuating the building’s non-rectilinear site. Attendees visited communal areas and peeked into private living areas to soak in the full experience. They were also fortunate enough to visit while an exhibition on the work of Zaha Hadid Architects (the building’s architect), as well as the Mayfair’s interior mockups, were on display.
