The Arts Society Chiswick: Zaha Hadid – architectural superstar
8.00pm, Thursday 10 May
The lectures are held in the Malinova Room at The Polish Centre (POSK), 238-246 King Street, Hammersmith, London W6 0RF.
Tonight’s lecture is on Zaha Hadid – architectural superstar. Dame Zaha Hadid died on March 31st 2016 at age of 65. Architectural historians of the future will surely recognise her as one of the most important architects of the early 21st century. She was born in Iraq and her reputation was global, but she made Britain her home. This lecture tells the story of her career from the visionary projects of the 1980s, through the years of frustration when her designs were considered unbuildable, to the prolific crop of successful projects built all over the world in the last decade of her life.
Tonight’s lecturer Colin Davies is Professor of Architectural Theory. Former editor of Architects’ Journal and contributor to magazines worldwide. His published books are – Thinking About Architecture, Key Houses of the Twentieth Century, The Prefab Home, High Tech Architecture and monographs on work of Foster, Hopkins & Grimshaw, A new History of Modern Architecture.
