Description

Zaha Hadids success is no doubt linked to her capacity to build images of remarkable power. This volume, published with an exhibition at MAXXI, is not just a tribute to the great architect. Instead, she is portrayed in terms of her relationship with Italy and interest in its culture. The dynamic inspirations of the Baroque period in Rome, the kaleidoscopic visions of Futurism, and the experimental research of Luigi Moretti and Pier Luigi Nervi are just some of the explicit references in her work. Moreover, it is precisely the plastic use of concrete tested by Italian engineers during the post-war years and since abstracted that is manifested in her architecture, in Italy and elsewhere.

One of the most influential and visionary architects of our times, Zaha Hadid has redefined the architecture of the twenty-first century and captured the imagination of the whole world.0One year since her untimely death, MAXXI is devoting to her the exhibition 'Zaha Hadid in Italy'. Focusing on Hadid?s projects in Italy, the exhibition highlights her intense and productive relationship with our country, presenting projects and works created by means of various instruments of representation, research, and experimentation that she honed in the course of her career; from pictorial and conceptual sketches to three-dimensional models, from virtual representations to the more recent interdisciplinary studies addressed to the application of new solutions and technologies, in a pioneering effort of investigation in design.00Exhibition: MAXXI-National Museum of 21st Century Arts, Rome, Italy (23.06.2017 - 14.01.2018).
