Dezeen Debate features "a tastefully understated building from ZHA"

British studio Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled plans for the adaptive reuse of a 1960s shipping warehouse in Riga, Latvia, which will be transformed into the Ropax Ferry Terminal.

The Ropax Ferry Terminal will house facilities for both ferry and cruise ship passengers, aiming to optimize the port’s operational efficiency and streamline passenger circulation routes.

Readers discussed the plans, with one playfully remarking, “What does it say when the least ‘Zaha’, post-Zaha project is the one I like?” They added: “It is quite a tastefully understated building from ZHA.”

Another praised the “tasteful, serene, clear, and simple project by ZHA!”.
