Towards a New Architecture: Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid – Fluidity & Design
Bahrain, Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al-Khalifa Center

For the inaugural exhibition in the Gulf, the Pritzker Prize winning architect presents her practice’s continued exploration and research towards a new architectural language of fluidity. Zaha Hadid’s work encompasses all scales of design, viewing the fields of urbanism, architecture and design as inherently interrelated and driven by the latest advances in computational design processes and state-of-the-art fabrication technologies.

In a dialogue of complex curvilinear geometries, works included within the exhibition range from jewelry to large-scale furniture pieces, each produced as unique or limited edition pieces such as Lotus, a large-scale concept that integrates furniture and architecture designed for the 2008 Venice Architecture Biennale, and select pieces from the Celeste and Glace Jewelry Collections, designed for Swarovski.
