Zaha Hadid, Sci-Arc (1985)


February 21, 1985
“Zaha Hadid reviews her work at the AA with Rem Koolhaas, and, before that, with Leon Krier. She stresses her interest in the Russian avant-garde. She expresses her need to seriously engage with twentieth century culture. She describes her first independent projects after leaving the Office of Metropolitan Architecture. She explores the ideas of dynamics, also referred to by some as hysterics. She argues for the importance of color as a way of manipulating building and space. She discusses her competition project for the Peak Leisure Club in Hong Kong.”
