HKDI Gallery| Zaha Hadid Architects : Vertical Urbanism

The investigative spirit on which Zaha Hadid based her career continues in Zaha Hadid Architects’ ground-breaking work around the world. ‘Zaha Hadid Architects: Vertical Urbanism’, organised by Hong Kong Design Institute and Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), showcases this exploration on the theme of urbanism by presenting a range of design strategies taken by ZHA to create vibrant and sustainable community orientated spaces within dense urban conditions, opening up a dialogue around urbanism in the 21st century.

The exhibition begins with an overview of the ongoing research and development within the studio, often incorporating collaborations with renowned scientific institutions developing innovations in robotics, artificial intelligence, and digital fabrication which in turn informs the studio’s design process. A selection of key projects by ZHA is then presented via a large-scale projection. The presentation reveals series of architectural models, highlighting the studio’s range of work across culture, sport, transport, campus + headquarters, and masterplan projects.

The exhibition culminates with an in-depth presentation of tall buildings designed by ZHA over the past 15 years. Design strategies related to the urban context are highlighted as ways in which to facilitate a more sustainable and vibrant urbanism for the vertical city: density, ground interface, atria + bridges, façade, and sustainability.
