Zaha Hadid Architects opened their most recent pavilion in Millennium Park, Chicago as a part of the Burnham Plan centennial celebrations.

The Zaha Hadid pavilion was created using a curved aluminum frame, and a tightly wrapped fabric skin. Overall, it kind of looks like a giant larvae or seashell depending on your perspective, but that’s the fun of temporary architecture.

This Zaha Hadid Pavilion was created to accommodate a Thomas Grey video installation.

Implications - Personally, I'm having trouble tearing my eyes away from the thing. In addition to looking like a gross, colorful seashell or a giant larvae, it could also pass for an egg. The versatility of the Zeha Hadid Pavillion makes the Thomas Grey video installation that much more special. Cheers to that.
