Central Bank of Iraq (CBI)

The Zaha Hadid design for the central bank of Iraq (CBI) includes a 172 m tall highrise and a large sculptural podium right at the banks of the Tigris river in the center of Baghdad.

The complex-geometry three-dimensional UHPC claddings and glass facades follow very high standards regarding bomb blast security and attack resistance.
