Example text

The whole environment becomes relational: the relativity of Hadid’s space-form takes on the Einsteinian relativity of space-time in what promises to be one of her most intellectually ambitious projects. Until very recently, Hadid’s architecture was viewed as marginal, impracticable and even extreme. But the rolling success of her built projects is cumulatively establishing not only the credibility of the vision but also its incontestable power and public appeal. Hadid never designed down to her clients, and the world now seems to be catching up to a standard that she set.

The space becomes personal, owned by visitor through a process of peripatetic exploration. The aesthetic refinement of her designs, their very beauty, belies the fact that Hadid is committed to cultivating and enhancing the urban environment. Through all the projects, she opens geometries to invite the city into her buildings. At the CAC, where she extends what she calls “an urban carpet” from the sidewalk through the lobby up the back of the stairwell, the city and building enter a mutually supportive, reciprocal relationship.

Just as she layered images in her drawings and paintings, she layered her findings in a broader field of ideas. In projects ranging from homes to an opera house, Hadid—working with principle associate Patrick Schumacher and other members of her trusted staff—explored such issues as the multiple ground plane, sectional interconnectivity, occupied structure and infrastructure, and formal and spatial liquidity. In a house in the Hague, she conceived an interior organized on a ramp that spiraled within the cubic form required by the developer.
