Climbing the picturesque Austrian mountains, and crossing the River Inn, the stunning new cable railway in Innsbruck (opened December 1st) features doubly curved glass, sweeping, fluid forms and designer Hadid's signature 'fluid' expression. Architect Zaha Hadid explains "we wanted each station to use the fluid language of natural ice formations, like a frozen stream on the mountainside.”
