ZAHA | STEPHANIE SO

 

I recently went to visit ZAHA HADID: There Should Be No End To Experimentation, a Zaha Hadid's exhibition in ArtisTree, Hong Kong. This exhibition is the largest to date, featuring early paintings by Zaha, an architectural pioneer and visionary. I went into the exhibition speechless, and left even more speechless. To be able to see Zaha's work and creative process in real life was truly an amazing experience. However, I will keep this short as I will write more about it in my next blog post.

Anyways, throwing back to last Summer. I visited Guangzhou and of course, I had to go see the Guangzhou Opera House, which is located at the heart of Guangzhou's cultural development. Designed by Zaha Hadid, the opera house is like pebbles in a stream smoothed by erosion, and sits in perfect harmony with its riverside location (influenced by river valleys). The design evolved from the concepts of a natural landscape and the fascinating interplay between architecture and nature; engaging with the principles of erosion, geology and topography. 

It was a sizzling hot summer over in Guangzhou so I had ice cold boba tea to sip on, whilst my sister and I randomly strolled around and took pictures. And no, I definitely do not miss the heat. I was sweating like there was no tomorrow. Can't actually believe this was half a year ago!
