ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS PRESENT AN EXPERIMENTAL UNIVERSE AT THEIR EXHIBIT IN DENMARK
Zaha Hadid in collaboration with design studios Kollision and Wahlberg, and The Centre for Advanced Visualization and Interaction (CAVI) presents her first solo exhibition in Scandinavia at the Danish Architecture Centre. This exhibition presents a world of interactive architectural forms that are synonymous with Hadid’s styles along with an installation called Parametric Space. With the intention to merge design with geometry, the Iraqi-British architect showcases sophisticated towers, shell constructions, design objects and furniture through this unique amalgamation.
The Parametric Space is the key highlight and appears as a black rectangular box that responds to the visitor’s movements by changing shape and expression. The flexible membrane, which appears to be a normal flat ceiling, comes down and opens into a funnel shape creating a surreal yet tangible experience with two laser scanner sensors and the four projectors built into the floor. Brought to life by thousands of dynamic light particles inhabiting the surface, the membrane serves as a reflection of Hadid’s architectural language.
EXHIBITION: BUOY JAIN AND KAPIL GUPTA
TWO CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTS, MUMBAI
BUOY JAIN AND KAPIL GUPTA JOIN HANDS TO DEMONSTRATE THEIR CONTEMPORARY DESIGN VOCABULARY
Showcasing projects of two top contemporary architects from Mumbai. Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai and Kapil Gupta of Serie Architects, this exhibition held in July served as a window to understand their distinct architectural language, processes and sensibilities.
Held at the Mumbai Art Room, the exhibition was a peek into their varied styles and was demonstrated through miniature models, wall drawings, axonometric views, site images, project plans and working mockups of carefully designed projects.
Curated by American architect Aaron Schwarz, the duo’s designs take cues from the location along with the social, historic and climatic conditions of the era.
