When Zaha Hadid’s fluid form meets Charlotte Olympia’s platform wedges and a perspex clutch bag.
The late architect Zaha Hadid was renowned for her futuristic design during the time she was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize – she was the first woman to receive the prize. She shocked the world because most of her designs had not been built yet at the time. More than a decade later, she is sadly no longer with us but her architecture has been realised into beautiful forms all over the world.
In Southern Iraq, there were these villages in the marshes that had beautiful landscape. There was this amazing flow between the sand and the water and the wildlife that extended to incorporate the buildings and the people. I guess part of what I am trying to do as an architect is capture that kind of seamlessness and flow in an urban context—for the contemporary city and its users.
