Modern Art Museum showcases the work of architect Zaha Hadid in a retrospective,
Modern Art Museum (MAM) is currently holding the first exhibition of Zaha Hadid Architects,
providing a retrospective of Zaha Hadid’s architectural projects since 1982.
Named “ZHA Close Up – Work & Research,” the exhibition explores the ground-breaking research and interconnected relationships that unite ZHA projects around the world.
It also details the technological innovations that are transforming how studios are imagined, designed, and built environments are built.
The exhibition features diverse elements of Zaha Hadid Design (ZHD),
which bear the traces of her distinct dialogue of contemporary design.
It also features featured models for important studio projects and photographs,
and runs through August 29, 2021.
The show examines the evolution of buildings by Zaha Hadid Architects over the past forty years.
Starting with the flowing urban spaces of the MAXXI Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome (2010), and Leeza SOHO in Beijing (2019).
It also examines the studio’s groundbreaking projects, which are currently being developed across continents,
demonstrating a consistent desire to innovate and inspire.
The presentation aims to introduce the work of Zaha Hadid Architects closely,
and to showcase the depth of their experience in the field of architecture.
The late Zaha Hadid has redefined 21st century architecture with a series of projects that have captured imaginations around the world.
Having visited many Chinese cities to experience her art and architecture,
Hadid has studied the styles that fuse her historical architecture within the magnificent theater of the landscape.
“ZHA Close Up” explores the journey of four decades of experiences that have been incorporated into the structure of ZHA.
She testified that her designs are the most spatially innovative, the most structurally efficient,
and the most technologically advanced.
It is also more environmentally sensitive with each new design and puts the firm’s designs at the forefront of architectural practice.
The company’s projects have received the highest honors from civil, professional and academic institutions around the world.
What does “ZHA Close Up” offer?
It presents the studio’s groundbreaking research to improve how the industry is designed and built in the following areas:
By applying detailed environmental analysis and engineering optimization techniques to maximize design efficiency while minimizing waste and resource consumption.
Computation and Design:
By collaborating with the world’s most respected scientific institutions to advance innovations in robotics, artificial intelligence, and digital manufacturing.
By investigating the processes of expected social interactions in environments designed via agent-based simulations with distinct agent groups and decision-making processes.
Analytics and Insights:
Using data analytics and human behavior modeling to design healthy and productive work environments, tailored to individual and public health.
They tried to show the amazing possibilities that immersive technologies will offer architects to collaborate and design in augmented reality.
The exhibition started on June 26, 2021 and runs until August 29, 2021 at MAM Shanghai.
It is the largest contemporary art museum in Shanghai,
with an area of more than 7,000 square metres.
The State Art Museum is located at the heart of Shanghai’s cultural tilt along the Huangpu River.
