Lecture in English

Zaha Hadid Architects is internationally known for the dynamic and innovative projects that builds on over thirty years of revolutionary experimentation and research in the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture and design. “We work at all scales and in all sectors. We create transformative cultural, corporate, residential and other spaces that work in synchronicity with their surroundings.”

Working with senior office partner Patrik Schumacher, Hadid’s interest is in the rigorous interface between architecture, landscape, and geology as the practice integrates natural topography and human-made systems that lead to experimentation with cutting-edge technologies. Such a process often results in unexpected and dynamic architectural forms.
The MAXXI: National Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome, BMW Central Building in Leipzig and Guangzhou Opera House are excellent demonstrations of the practice’s quest for complex, dynamic space. Currently, the practice is working on a multitude of projects including; the KAPSARC Research Centre in Riyadh, the Aquatics Centre for the London 2012 Olympic Games, High-Speed Train Stations in Naples and Durango, the CMA CGM Head Office tower in Marseille and urban master-plans in Cairo, Istanbul, China, Singapore and the Middle East.

Patrik Schumacher, is partner at Zaha Hadid Architects and founding director at the AA Design Research Lab. He joined Zaha Hadid in 1988 and has since been the co-author of many key projects, a.o. MAXXI – the National Italian Museum for Art and Architecture of the 21st century in Rome, Seoul’s Dong Daemon Design Centre, and the bid-winning design for Tokyo’s Olympic stadium for 2020. In 2010 he won the Royal Institute of British Architects’ Stirling Prize for excellence in architecture.

In 2010 and 2012 he published the two Volumes of his theoretical opus magnum The Autopoiesis of Architecture.

In his much debated article Parametricism  -  A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design (2009) Patrik Schumacher argued that the global convergence in recent avant-garde architecture justifies the enunciation of a new style: Parametricism.

Patrik Schumacher’s work casts lights on the complexity and richness of the process of architectural design. His studies on parametricism represent a fundamental contribution to the current debates on digital design.
