March 9th to March 12th 2016 Zaha Hadid at Design Shanghai 2016 Booth Eg-35 Shanghai Exhibition Centre No. 1000 Yan'an Mid Road Jing'an District, Shanghai


Zaha Hadid is internationally known for her built, theoretical and academic work. Each of her dynamic and pioneering projects builds on over thirty years of exploration and research in the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture and design. The pieces featured are a perfect example of this.

The practice’s constant experimentation and research into materials and manufacturing techniques are evident in the pieces showcased in Design Shanghai 2016. These collaborations are experimental, quicker to execute than the architecture projects and inspire creativity – an opportunity to express ideas in a different scale and through different medium. There is a strong reciprocal relationship whereby more the avant-garde designs encourage the development of new digital technologies and fabrication techniques – and those new developments in turn inspire Zaha Hadid Architects to push the design envelope ever further.

Hadid’s work in design presents the 21st Century’s evolution towards the organic, as well as an exploration of scale, innovation, and materiality: from the wonderfully tactile natural forms in wood and stone, to the high-gloss industrial of innovative manufacturing and fabrication technologies.

在设计上海2016展览中所展示的这些作品充分彰显了我们对于材料和制造工艺的持续性实验操作和探究。这些合作项目都极具实验性,并比建筑项目更快速的达到实践结果且充满创意,是一个可以通过在不同尺度和媒介上表达概念的机遇。其中创造了让更多的前卫设计去激发新数字技术和制造技术的发展,同时也一并启发扎哈∙哈迪德建筑事务所继续将设计推进新高度的双向效益。 扎哈∙哈迪德因为她的理论学术和她的实践建筑成果而被世界所知晓。她的每一个富有动感而先锋的作品都是在与城市规划,建筑以及设计相关领域里超过三十年的不断探索和研究中衍生出来的。而眼下这些作品就是最好的范例。
