Zaha Hadid Design continues to be a global leader in pioneering research and design investigation. Collaborations with artists, designers, engineers and clients that lead their industries have advanced the practice’s diversity and knowledge whilst the implementation of state of the art technologies, have aided the realization of fluid, dynamic and therefore complex architectural structures.
Our continued experimentation and research into materials and techniques is evident in the pieces showcased at IDFFHK this year. These collaborations are of great importance to us. They are experimental, quicker to execute than the architecture projects and inspire our creativity; an opportunity to express our ideas in a different scale and through different media. We see it as part of a continuous process of design investigation where our designs become more ambitious as we discover new possibilities in design, material, and fabrication technologies. There is a strong reciprocal relationship whereby our more avant-garde designs encourage the development of new digital technologies and fabrication techniques – and those new developments in turn inspire us to push the design envelope ever further.
