Zaha Hadid Beyond Boundaries, Art and Design

Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Patrik Schumacher

“Within the context of the exhibition ‘Zaha Hadid Beyond Boundaries, Art and Design’, Ivorypress held on 4 September 2012 a panel discussion which featured speakers Zaha Hadid, architect and founder of Zaha Hadid Architects; Patrik Schumacher, architect and partner of Zaha Hadid Architects; Kenny Schachter, curator of the exhibition; Norman Foster, architect and founder of Foster + Partners; Luis Fernández Galiano, architect and professor at ETSAM, and Elena Ochoa Foster, founder and CEO of Ivorypress.

The discussion centred around the personal and unorthodox world-view of the London-based Iraqi architect. Hadid is interested in contact points between architecture, landscape and geology and her work incorporates both the natural topography and the systems created by humans. The resulting creations transform our vision of the future with new spatial concepts and bold, visionary forms.”
