Zaha Hadid – World Architecture
The summer exhibition at The Danish Architecture Centre features the work of the internationally acclaimed architect Zaha Hadid in her first solo exhibition in Scandinavia.
The exhibitionZaha Hadid - World Architecturecan be seen at the Danish Architecture Centre from 29 June - 29 September 2013
The Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid is one of the most sought-after architects in the world. She was the first female architect to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize - considered to be the Nobel Prize of architecture.
For over 30 years, Hadid has challenged the boundaries of architecture with her dynamic, visionary and complex architectural language that transforms our perception of the architecture of tomorrow. Examples of her work include the MAXXI Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome (2010), Guangzhou Opera House (2010), BMW Central Building in Leipzig (2005), London Aquatic Centre (2011) and, in Denmark, the extension to the Ordrupgaard Museum (2005) north of Copenhagen.
For this summer's exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre, Zaha Hadid Architects have created an exhibition experience where you are invited into Zaha Hadid's experimental universe of sophisticated towers, shell constructions, design objects and pioneering research. The exhibition outlines the evolution of Hadid's architectural language, showcasing its adaptations and refinements at a variety of scales: from buildings and urban plans to furniture and product designs. Each piece on show is presented within a choreographed ensemble of architectural objects, in which organic shapes and advanced geometry are unified in seamless perfection.
In 2005, Zaha Hadid Architects completed their only building in Scandinavia to date; the Ordrupgaard Museum extension north of Copenhagen. By interpreting the varied contextual relationships of museum's setting and exploring diversity in the galleries' design the unique expression of the museum extension adds an exciting new dimension to Ordrupgaard's original, neo-classical building.
The exhibition at the Danish Architecture Centre is Zaha Hadid's first solo exhibition in Scandinavia. During the exhibition period there will be a number of talks and lectures. Keep up to date via www.dac.dk
