The Heydar Aliyev Centre illustrates this on a large scale with a continuous shell structure and no columns. It sweeps up to a peak at the rear, and spills out and bleeds onto the plaza, while also continuing the exterior ground surface into the wall surface and up into the roof surface.
Zaha Hadid won a competition to design the 57,000-square metre-building in 2007. Its shell is made out of a steel space frame and glass-fibre-reinforced concrete panels, concealing the vertical supports within the walls.
The Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre represents a fluid form which emerges from the folding of the natural landscape of the countryside and from the wrapping of the individual functions of the interior. All the functions, together with the inputs, are represented as folds in a single, continuous exterior surface.
The architect cites the ornamental patterns and curving forms of traditional Islamic architecture as a reference for the design.
Zaha Hadid was an Iraqi-British Architect, who was the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Her style was intensely futuristic architecture characterized by curving facades, sharp angles, and using materials such as concrete and steel.
Neo-futurism is a utopian architecture movement from the beginning of the 21st century. Its conceptual foundations combine ethics, aesthetics and innovation in a quest for an ideal when its concrete realization gives primacy to form and material.
The earliest surviving written work on the subject of architecture is De architectura by the Roman architect Vitruvius in the early 1st century AD.
She designed almost 1000 projects
The late architect is the founder of the leading firm Zaha Hadid Architects which has designed 950 projects in 44 countries.
Zaha Hadid was an architect known for her radical deconstructivist designs. She was the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2004. Her buildings included the Heydar Aliyev Centre Baku, Azerbaijan, and the MAXXI museum of contemporary art and architecture in Rome.
The main structure of the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre is a mix of reinforced concrete, steel frame structures, and composite beams and decks.
The Center, designed to become the primary building for the nation's cultural programs, breaks from the rigid and often monumental Soviet architecture that is so prevalent in Baku, aspiring instead to express the sensibilities of Azeri culture and the optimism of a nation that looks to the future.
A Space Frame structure can be defined as a rigid, lightweight, truss-like structure. It is constructed from interlocking struts in a geometric pattern. The Space frames can be used efficiently to cover huge areas with minimum interior supports.
The Galaxy SOHO complex in central Beijing consists of four spherical structures connected by curving platforms, courtyards, and pedestrian bridges, with 18 floors total.
The estate's assets were estimated at £67 million ($81 million) after Hadid's death, but are now said to be worth £100 million ($132.8 million) thanks to a lucrative contract with Bulgari.
Neo-futurism incorporates urban design that is in touch with human emotions, eco-sustainability, ethical values, and the use of new materials and technologies. Two of the architects most synonymous with neo-futurism are Zaha Hadid and Santiago Calatrava.
The following elements define parametric architecture: Blending complexity and variety, thus rejecting homogenous utilitarianism. Shared priorities involving urbanism, interior design, an architectural wonder, and even fashion. The idea that all design elements are interdependent and adaptable.
adjective. Something that is futuristic looks or seems very modern and unusual, like something from the future.
Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid (1950–2016) left an indelible mark on the architectural landscape. Her striking structures grace the skylines of major metropolitan cities, while her product designs, including furniture, jewelry, lighting, and shoes, can be found in homes around the world.
The study resulted in exposing the six techniques she uses to design the architectural form which are abstraction and fragmentation; idea of the ground and gravity; landscaping project and the surrounding context; Layering; play of light; seamlessness and fluidity.
Hadid creates curvilinear plans to produce building that melt into what is often an irregular site. The “Queen of Curves” creates works of arts with the help of Mother Nature and the beautiful landscapes she erects.
