Where: Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Center for Culture and Research, Bahrain
When: 15 March – 30 April 2010


For her inaugural exhibition in the Gulf, Zaha Hadid - Fluidity & Design, the Pritzker Prize winning architect presents her practice’s continued exploration and research towards a new architectural language of fluidity that encompasses all scales of design – a built manifesto informed by originality and innovation.

Evolving from the demands of greater complexity and variety in contemporary society, this new language is driven by the latest advances in computational design processes and state-of-the-art fabrication technologies.

In a dialogue of complex curvilinear geometries - each design morphologically conceived and shaped further by typological, functional and ergonomic considerations - Hadid reinvents the balance between object and space – establishing a direct discourse with the Cartesian galleries of the Shaikh Ebrahim Center and presenting the unbounded possibilities of her formal repertoire.
