Zaha Hadid: Architecture, Design and Related Arts
A talk by Jane Pavitt.
On 2nd August 2022 the Zaha Hadid Foundation welcomed HENI Art Club to their iconic space on Bowling Green Lane, Zaha Hadid’s former architectural office, for an exclusive talk about the legendary architect, designer and artist.
Jane Pavitt, Head of Learning and Research at the Zaha Hadid Foundation, introduces us to the architect’s life and work, looking back in time to reveal what shaped her unique style.
Internationally recognised as one of the most important architects of the modern period, Zaha Hadid is frequently credited with developing a whole new architectural language in her quest for what she described as ‘complex, dynamic and fluid spaces.’
Attendees received a personal tour of the Foundation’s inaugural exhibition Zaha Hadid: Reimagining London, which delves into the collections and archives of the Foundation, uncovering rare and unseen works, including personal sketchbooks, from over 40 years of practice.
The venue at 10 Bowling Green Lane is full of history, a grade-II listed Victorian former school which stood as Hadid’s architectural office for 38 years.
