If you like your museums located 2,275 metres above sea level, near the Kronplatz ski resort in South Tyrol, Italy, and you remember Ben Folds Five albums, and you like mountain climbers, you will love Zaha Hadid's new design for a museum built for climber Reinhold Messner on Alpine peak, Mount Kronplatz. As Dezeen notes, "London-based architect Zaha Hadid – already in the news this month after her design for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium was scrapped – designed a structure built into the side of the mountain, emerging only at certain points to offer specific views."
