Having featured projects from Zaha Hadid Architects before it’s our pleasure to announce that later this month, Zaha Hadid Architects and MAM Shanghai will present a major exhibition exploring a retrospective of the architectural studio’s work. Centred around its many projects in China, the exhibition explores how new relationships and technology have changed how the studio design and imagine some of the most adventurous buildings of the last 40 years.
ZHA Close Up Work and Research is the first exhibition showcasing the architectural studio’s work in mainland China.
Founded by the late Zaha Hadid in 1979, Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) has reimagined architecture for the 21st century with a portfolio of projects that have captured imaginations worldwide.
Zaha Hadid was the first female to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004. She first visited China in 1981, travelling widely through the country to experience Chinese art and architecture and its relationship with its environment.
Shai Baitel, Artistic Director of MAM Shanghai, said:
“I am excited to include, as part of our interdisciplinary and immersive approach at MAM, this important exhibition, celebrating Zaha Hadid’s ingenuity. Hadid was an exceptional woman, and we are delighted to show our audience the development of her movement as a researcher, designer, and architect through various geographies and histories—and how this movement impacts the current innovative vision and work of Zaha Hadid Architects, following her untimely passing. Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) continues and expands on her legacy and MAM is proud to present this show, granting unprecedented insights into the vision of one of the most important architects of our time.”
