Publication includes contributions by Patrik Schumacher and Woody Yao, ZHA and ZHD; and David Lund, Rebecca Smith, Professor Stuart Bartholomew, Professor Emma Hunt and Dr. Christian McLening, AUB.

This exhibition explores how this innovative studio has evolved its design processes over the past thirty years to create some of the most distinctive and creative buildings in the world. By showcasing the complete design archive of an early building alongside current projects making use of digital design processes such as virtual reality and parametric design, the practice’s remarkable journey from analogue to digital methods is outlined.

Each of the practice’s innovative projects build on over thirty years of exploration and research in the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture and design. As one is guided through the selection of exhibits, a clear progression in the office’s design aesthetics is presented from Zaha Hadid’s early deconstructivist beginnings to the more fluid and organic design that is presented in 3D printed form.

Through handmade models, sketches, drawings, computer renders, animations, paintings, 3D printed models, prototypes and videos, the exhibition will offer an insight on the different media that have played a key role in developing and designing projects throughout the history of the practice.
