In a recent release, Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited announced Morpheus as winner of 2019 Building of the Year Awards, Hospitality Architecture Category. The USD1.1 billion project is the world’s first free-form exoskeleton high-rise designed by the late Dame Zaha Hadid. Morpheus is one of the awards’ 15 cross-category winners shortlisted from over 4,000 global architectural projects, as voted by readers of ArchDaily, the world’s most visited architecture website. Celebrating its 10th edition, this year’s awards received more than 80,000 votes from the platform’s readership comprising global professionals; recognizing architectural excellence for its beauty, intelligence, creativity and contribution to society. Named after the god of dreams in Greek Mythology, Morpheus is the latest addition to the Phase III development of City of Dreams Macau, and exemplifies Melco’s position as a pioneer and innovator in premium travel, leisure and entertainment. This achievement follows being named one of TIME Magazine‘s “World’s Greatest Places 2018” last year, just two months after its opening.
Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “Melco and Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) shared the same vision and determination from the very beginning to push boundaries. Morpheus offers a journey of the imagination, offering sophisticated travelers the most remarkable experiences that go beyond gaming and raise the bar in global luxury hospitality. We are excited to receive this global accolade and wish to thank the award organizers and its voters, and of course ZHA for making this achievement possible. Melco will continue to aspire to the creation of iconic world-firsts for both Macau and beyond.”
札哈·哈蒂建筑事务所副总监 Viviana Muscettola 女士表示：“澳门建筑一向云集来自世界各地的风格。摩珀斯是从其独特的环境和建筑条件当中，演化成为能代表这座城市的崭新建筑。摩珀斯综合的参数建筑模型融合了此酒店对美学、结构和物料的要求，我们相信这将会从原则上影响现时对环境规划及建设的模式。”
Ms. Viviana Muscettola, Associate Director of Zaha Hadid Architects, said: “Macau’s buildings have previously referenced architecture styles from around the world. Morpheus has evolved from its unique environment and site conditions as a new architecture expressly of this city. The comprehensive parametric model combined all of the hotel’s aesthetic, structural and fabrication requirements and will radically change how our built environment is planned and constructed.”
Morpheus represents another stunning world first contribution Melco has created in Macau, characterized by an unprecedented level of attention to detail and designed with the premium guest experience in mind. Morpheus represents several architectural and technological breakthroughs. The monolithic block is intriguing in its unconventional architectural construction. A series of voids offers complexity and volume; the building’s two towers are connected at the podium levels and at the roof, with two additional bridges for guests to experience the external voids within the building.
