Zaha Hadid and neofuturistic forms. Architecture as an inspiration for tiles.

Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid is one of the leading names ,who gives totally new understanding of architecture, bringing out curved, organic shapes in buildings and furniture. Her name has gained worldwide recognition in architecture and design because  of  incredibly inventive and  very exciting for eye buildings.

She is the first woman in this industry, who received the Pritzker Architecture Prize (in 2004).

Architecture was always inspiring me , but with the time I started to do my uni projects, it gained new dimension. It became influential for my design projects and it’s source of ideas and inspirations.

Zaha’s Hadid futuristic architecture is very inspirational for me and each of her projects is so exciting and aesthetically challenged.  Flowing asymmetric domes are one of characteristic of her architecture.

When I look at the pictures of her work, I can clearly see, that she has developed her own unique style.  But also here appears question in my head : what this style is? It’s hard to classify it and generally work of contmeporary architects , as the new architecture often has wild forms with he use of new materials  and often a few  curved lines are associated with organic forms, which do not necessarily have to be organic.  I think there is a problem, what to call the style.

How can I link her work with my project ?  I want to look and link architecture  and other disciplines and try to develop them further to find solutions for my new project about tiles and modular forms. I’m aiming to transfer the inspirations from nature and architecture . In the project I would like to expand three dimensional modular forms and tiles and find some innovative solution which will end up with some extraordinary final piece.      Underneath , the most mind blowing architectures of Zaha Hadid.

Thomas Heatherwick

Since the late 1990s Heatherwick has appeared as one of Britain’s most gifted and imaginative designers. A few of his most succesfull and recognazible designs are East Beach Cafe , British Pavilion and Bleigiessen .

UK Pavilion at Expo 2010


The picture above shows pavilion at Expo 2010 designed by Thomas Haetherwick. I think that the structure of the building is very interesting, as it;s not flat but it’s structured.
