zaha hadid’s mobile art pavilion has found its permanent home outside of the institute du monde arabe in paris after a world tour – inclusive of new york, tokyo and hong kong – that began in 2008. donated to the institute by chanel, the unit will aid in the development of broader cultural programs at the center and will host exhibitions that showcase the talent of designers, artists and architects from arab countries.

conceived through a system of natural organization, the structure is shaped by both functional and conceptual considerations. fluid geometries and organic lines compose a continuum of fluent and dynamic spaces, where oppositions between light and dark, interior and exterior and natural and artificial are manufactured. undulating surfaces and flowing volumes converge, constantly redefining the quality and experience of each exhibition space, while guiding movement throughout.

distorted and contoured, the unit is an expression of the integration between sculpted lines and formal logic. derived from new digital modeling tools, the low spiraling pavilion contrasts the order and repetition evident in jean nouvel’s nearby  building.
