Born in Baghdad (Iraq), Hadid studied architecture at the Architectural Association in London. Zaha Hadid constantly crosses the limits of traditional architecture and urban design.
Her work experiments with new spatial concepts that intensify existing urban landscape in the search for an aesthetic vision that includes all fields of design, from large exteriors to interiors and furniture.
She presents her projects like paintings, with broken, highly-coloured planes. She began her career in the early 1970s collaborating with OMA (Rem Koolhaas practice). While in England, she designed a bridge over the River Thames, a museum and some palaces open to the public. The famous La Punta project (social club located at the highest point in Hong Kong) crystallises the qualities of her production trends.
1979 saw her inaugurate her own architecture studio, and by the following decade she was designing and building all over the world. Her style is clearly defined by thin, projected, pointy volumes set in unified groups around eccentric centres. The architects best-known projects include the fire station at Vitra, Germany (beside the museum designed by Frank Gehry); the LFone Pavilion at Weil am Rhein, Germany; the Bergisel ski jump at Innsbruck, Austria; the car park and tram terminus at Hoenheim-Nord, Strasburg, France; the Millennium Dome Mind Zone in Greenwich, London; the extension to the Museo Reina Sofía; the Museum for the Royal collections in Madrid, and the Plaza de las Artes in Barcelona, among others.
She has also designed hotels and vertical buildings like the Kurfürstendamm 70, Berlin; the IBA Hochhaus, Berlin; the Azabu-Jyuban Building, Tokyo; a hotel in Abu Dhabi; the Spittalmarkt in Berlin, and a hotel in New Yorks 42nd Street. Her most recent projects are the Ferry Terminus in the Italian city of Salerno, the High Speed Train Station in Naples, the new EuskoTren headquarters in Durango, Vizcaya, and the Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati (United States), among others.
Sinuous lines, fluid spaces, Zaha Hadid was the first woman to receive the Pritxker award (known as the Nobel prize of architecture). On the first floor she has designed a space that stands out for its fluidity and play with bold lines. Its fluid spaces, which were once ahead of the times, have now become trend-setting and can be seen all over the world. In this project, you will feel as if you have almost walked right into a science fiction space, but one that is paradoxically accessible, at one’s fingertips. Zaha Hadid has created an architectural language that invites guests to dream, to imagine different worlds, arising mainly from the possibilities of digital design and which have placed this architect at the forefront of the profession.
When you exit the lift, in the lobby, guests discover a space of curvy and sinuous shapes. First we notice a slim, sinuously shaped lamp named Vortexx, which is the main feature of this entire space. The hallways stand out for the sinuosity of their walls, with LG Hi-Macs, a ductile material that fits Zaha Hadid’s bold architectural vision like a glove.
