ME Dubai, the only hotel to be designed inside and out by the late Dame Zaha Hadid, will be presenting a selection of works by Zaha Hadid Architects and Zaha Hadid Design in a special exhibition.


The curated architectural journey is open to visitors and is situated across various areas of the hotel in Dubai which is housed in The Opus by OMNIYAT building. Developed by OMNIYAT, and located in the Burj Khalifa district, The Opus was designed by Zaha Hadid with a free-form void at its centre.
