Zaha Hadid: Total Fluidity
Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, Zaha Hadid is an architect who consistently pushes the boundaries of architecture and urban design. Her work experiments with new spatial concepts intensifying existing urban landscapes in the pursuit of a visionary aesthetic that encompasses all fields of design, ranging from urban scale through to products, interiors and furniture. Best known for her seminal built works (Vitra Fire Station, Land Formation-One, the Rosenthal Centre for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, and the BMW Central Building in Leipzig), her central concerns involve a simultaneous engagement in practice, teaching and research.
Hadid’s lecture is part of Cornell in Rome’s 20th anniversary celebration.
