Liquid Glacial table by Zaha Hadid
Zaha Hadid Events Liquid Glacial table design

Liquid Glacial table presented at David Gill St James’s inaugural exhibition.
Liquid Glacial is comprised of a series of tables resembling ice-formations made from clear and coloured acrylic. Their design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic.

The pristine geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, which seem to pour from the horizontal through an intense vortex that forms the table legs. The transparent acrylic material amplifies this perception, adding depth and complexity through a flawless display of infinite kaleidoscopic refractions.

Dichotomy egg by Zaha Hadid

Dichotomy egg for the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt raises £45,000 for Charity.
The Dichotomy egg for the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt sold at Sotheby’s London for £45,000 in aid of The Elephant Family and Action for Children charities.
The design evokes an exquisite degree of unfamiliarity from within the formal simplicity of this most recognizable of organic structures; a structured composition of fluidity that reinvents the equilibrium between solid and void. The dynamic curvilinear geometries invite further investigation to reveal a latent complexity; a journey of discovery into the very DNA of its creation.

18 Jun 2012 – the architect has been awarded the title Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for services to architecture in the Queen’s birthday honours.
Dame Zaha Hadid said: “It is a tremendous honour for me to receive this award. I would like to thank all my colleagues and clients for their hard work and support. I am delighted that architecture has been recognised in this way. My father went to the London School of Economics in the 1930s, and everything he learned at the time is why I have always leaned towards the UK.”

Zaha Hadid wins Jane Drew Prize

Zaha Hadid awarded the Jane Drew Prize for her outstanding contribution to the status of women in architecture.
The award was initially introduced in 1998 as a tribute to Jane Drew, the modernist English architect and town planner. It is awarded for respect of innovation, diversity – extending traditional categories valued in architecture – and inclusiveness – collaborative work – and is open to both men and women.
More than half of the women polled in the AJ Women in Architecture survey named Hadid as having made the greatest contribution to the status of women in architecture.

The judges said: ‘Hadid has broken the glass ceiling more than anyone and is practically a household name. Her achievement is remarkable. She has successfully fostered a studio which has grown to be one of the top ten largest in the UK. The practice manages to be at the cutting edge of thinking, influencing the teaching in architecture schools worldwide, while also winning and delivering an impressive array of projects, from the London Olympic Aquatics Centre to the Guangzhou Opera House.’
Hadid said: ‘Getting to where I am is hard. But it is do-able. Women architects do need some support from others who have made that journey.’

Citco with Zaha Hadid Architects – Salone del Mobile 2012, Milan, Italy The composition of each of the three showcased works is derived from the intricate beauty of organizational systems in the natural world. These fascinating scenarios are established when energy is applied to geology-developing a geometric set of repeated growth and erosion cycles. Each piece, immaculately crafted in marble by Citco, invites further investigation; revealing formal complexity, repetition and textures that celebrate the detailed process and fluidity of natural systems – a persuasive manifesto of nature’s unrivalled logic and unity; a journey of discovery into the forces of their creation. The exacting arrangements, structural integrity and precision of these natural systems inform a rich architectural language with the inherent capacity for complex programming.
