Das Hong Kong Design Institute, das Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education und die angeschlossene HDKI Gallery zeigen im Rahmen ihres ‚Essence of Design‘ Programms “Zaha Hadid Architects: Vertical Urbanism” als zentrale Ausstellung.
Design ist und Designer sind international. So folgt nun der Text zur Ausstellung im Original: “Zaha Hadid Architects: Vertical Urbanism” at the HKDI Gallery and presented virtually until 3 April 2022, showcases Zaha Hadid Architects’ (ZHA) innovations in architecture through a variety of project documentation tools – from technical drawings and diagrams, computer-generated visualisations, and architectural models, to video projections and virtual reality experiences. The immersive online exhibition builds upon the gallery’s popular program of digital exhibitions in contemporary design, enabling a wider audience to journey through ZHA’s formative projects, zoom in to details of architectural models and experience the multimedia exhibition. The exhibition presents the variety of approaches undertaken by ZHA in their development of vibrant and sustainable community-orientated spaces within dense urban conditions. It also explores ZHA’s ongoing research, detailing the pioneering innovation inscribed within the studio’s architecture.
The late architect Zaha Hadid (1950 – 2016) injected a new level of dynamism into architecture. Her vision has been explosive, fluid and boundless, forcefully questioning the need for urban fortifications in her drive to establish a continuous, active ground-plane. The investigative spirit on which Hadid based her career continues in ZHA’s ground-breaking work around the world.
HKDI is committed to promoting design education and facilitating dialogue among industry experts, students and design enthusiasts through partnerships with international museums, design institutions and designers. “We are excited to collaborate with ZHA and present the ‘Zaha Hadid Architects: Vertical Urbanism’ exhibition as part of HKDI’s interdisciplinary programme,” says Dr Lay Lian ONG, Principal of HKDI & IVE (Lee Wai Lee). “Zaha Hadid was a radical innovator who has left an imprint on modern architecture and design that will endure for many years to come. This exhibition celebrates the ingenuity of ZHA, showcasing the depth of experience of one of the most renowned architecture firms in the world. We hope that this exhibition will provide insight for students and the public alike into the stunning vision of one of the most important architects of our time.”
