venice  2012 architecture biennale: day one with updates on day five – live!

with the arum exhibition by zaha hadid architects and patrik schumacher at the arsenale in venice, the designboom team begins our coverage of the 13th international architecture exhibition themed ‘common ground’ and curated by UK architect david chipperfield. ‘arum’ is a central installation of pleated steel, see designboom’s initial coverage of the zaha hadid’s project with renderings and movie of the installation’s schematic design here.

zaha hadid’s exhibition explores the relationship between her own computer-driven geometries with a background of works by 20th century structural pioneers such as frei otto and heinz isler. forming a continuity from their precedent thin shells and tensile structures, the studio’s parametric studies are displayed alongside stone compression shells by philip block and work by hadid’s students at the university of applied arts in vienna.

  • nicely referenced between original studies by isler – work of the zha – office and research of their masterclass in vienna .. blends fluently ..have also seen great work on that by http://www.danielwidrig.com and http://www.christoph-hermann.com who ithink also studied and worked at zaha
