49 Examples of Zaha Hadid Architecture

From Tree-Inspired Exhibition Halls to White-Washed Hotels

— May 15, 2014 — Art & Design
Zaha Hadid architecture works are some of the best in the world, with the prolific designers touching a number of different areas, from stadiums to hotels. All finished products are distinct, with only one unifying factor in the works of Hadid: they are all boldly futuristic.

Hadid likes to experiment with forms, and will not hesitate to throw in a shape that is not conventionally used for certain designs. For example, with a recent exhibition hall the artist put in supports formed in the shape of a tree. These columns went almost halfway around the building before turning into a smooth facade.

No matter what the project, Hadid brings the best designs possibly for any client.
