Reggio Calabria Getting New WaterFront Project By Famed Architect Zaha Hadid.

Reggio Calabria, Italy is slated to be one of the next locations for the newest architectural projects done by famed architect Zaha Hadid. I've been on this marina and waterfront my whole life, so change is always hard to imagine. It looks like an amazing project and gorgeous structure that will include a museum (of which we already obtain the coveted "Riace Warriors," but it will include a theater, library, gym and much more.

The coastline in Reggio in really breathtaking, I appreciate this ideal for the preservation and advancement in Reggio Calabria, but I will also say that this type of large scale project can and might have negative effects on the panoramic visuals of the location. (Just my opinion.)

The beauty of being in Reggio Calabria is the fact that many places and locations are rustic and one of kind. Modern buildings such as the one pictured might find itself in an awkward place. (again, just my opinion) Take a look at the projected blueprints in the attached article. Interesting. Love Reggio Calabria. The next big thing.
