Austria got a major facelift last month with the completion of the Nordpark Cable Railway, which connects four major rail stations with a wildly popular ski resort at Innsbruck. The fantabulous igloo theme and the space station-like interiors are all thanks to star architect Zaha Hadid, who previously designed a ski jump in Innsbruck that won the Olympic Committee's 2005 Gold Medal for Design.
