A Cruise Ship... In The Desert?

Zaha Hadid Architects' proposal for a new intermodal transit station for the Saudi Arabian capital, Riyadh, at first glance looks something like a cruise ship with a sharp prow cutting through the desert. This was part of the inspiration, in fact, as the sine waves that roll across the fa├žade and organise the interior are derived from complex wind-generated waves of sand.
