'Zaha Hadid in Italy' exhibition opens today 
@museomaxxi, #Rome 
Considered to be one of the most influential and visionary architects of our time, #ZahaHadid redefined the architecture of the 21st century and captured the imagination of the entire world. A year after her sudden death, from 23 June 2017 to 28 January 2018 MAXXI is hosting Zaha Hadid in Italy, an exhibition curated by the director of #MAXXIArchitettura #MargheritaGuccione and #WoodyYao, director at Zaha Hadid Design. 
Zaha Hadid in Italy, organised in collaboration with @ZahaHadidDesign, @ZahaHadidArchitects and the #ZahaHadid Foundation, highlights the architect's enduring relationship with the country. The exhibition explores Hadid’s work through the rich and complex representational media she employed during the course of her career. 
An important section of the show is devoted to the Italian architectural projects, some of which were fundamental in the evolution of her research, other projects recount the development and the breadth of her architectural thinking. 
Another area of the exhibition is dedicated to Hadid’s research at all levels and in all fields, while another is devoted to design: this last features numerous objects created over the years for leading Italian brands such as @Fendi, #SawayaAndMoroni, @CassinaOfficial, @Bulgari and @Magis_official. From vases to bags, from lamps to sofas, her constant experimentation is represented through drawings, videos and prototypes that describe a process that from the very small could also applied to the monumental. 
#ZahaHadidinItaly is accompanied by a catalogue in Italian and English published by Quodlibet with critical texts by among others #DeyanSudjic, #RichardBurdett, @Stefano_Boeri and @Patrik_Schumacher, a section devoted to the photographs of #HeleneBinet and files dedicated to Hadid’s Italian projects.

  • Brilliant collage study by ARCHITECTEM Summer Program //Mapping Production Participant Yasmine El Alaoui -- a current sophomore at Rhode Island School of Design @risdarch :: "The Collage presents a scenario where entry ways for @alserkalavenue gallery spaces become gateways to the natural and forgotten Al Qouz. Where visitors get to 'visit' the area seated in load bearing cars. The collage attempts to question how authentic the re-appropriation of a space can be before it becomes absurd while illustrating the fascination visitors of the Avenue have with the nonchalant industrial world that neighbors them."

Mapping Production : : ARCHITECTEM Summer Program

Architecture engages a culture’s deepest social values and expresses them in material, aesthetic form.

PROGRAM ::

Mapping Production is a week long Program being held from 10th – 18th June 2017 at Alserkal Avenue. ARCHITECTEM is invested in delivering academically driven Programs to the architecture and design community with the aim of enriching the Architectural fabric of Dubai.

Drawing inspiration from Al Quoz, the Mapping Production Program is composed of two parts:

a.Dialogues Series, and

b. Mapping Workshop.

Mapping Production will be a ground for research, learning, networking and mentoring between academics and students from different architecture programs, and professionally practicing architects in the UAE. We are especially interested in the observations and dialogue that will arise within and from the workshop.
