Zaha Hadid’s revolutionary rail and cableway terminal, which brings city shops to mountain tops, opened on Saturday in Innsbruck, Austria.

The building contains four terminals of the funicular rail link and a new bridge over the River Inn, which uses “fluent lines” to imitate flowing water.

Set in breathtaking scenery, the building sits 2,269m high and is combined with the rail service, making the Nordkette mountain region accessible all year round.
