I love architecture—I’m sure that will be my profession in my next life. So writing as my next-life self, I decided to start a series of posts featuring architecture that is particularly art-y or design-y.
Disclaimer: While I wouldn’t particularly love to live in anything that looks like this, what I do love is Hadid’s sprit and how graphic her style is, even though it’s architecture. It’s like her buildings could be the forms that I might create a pattern or interesting poster with. Neat stuff!
Zaha Hadid is known for her parametric, futuristic, and elongated architecture. Some projects include “The Bridge Pavilion” in Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain, “The Contemporary Arts Center” in Cincinnanti, Ohio and “The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum” in Lansing, Michigan. Hadid received the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004, being the first woman ever to do so. You go, girl! Hadid also most notably designed the aquatics center for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
