Zaha Hadid: There Should Be No End To Experimentation

Over the weekend I caught the end of The Serpentine Sackler Gallery’s exhibition of Architect Zaha Hadid’s paintings and drawings. All from the period before her first building was erected in 1993, the exhibition focuses on Hadid’s 2D output from the 1970s to the 1990s. The Serpentine Sackler Gallery was one of Zaha Hadid Architects’ first permanent buildings in central London, completed in 2013 and in 2000 Hadid designed the inaugural pavilion for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion series.

There’s also a fascinating interview with the late Architect from the Serpentine’s first 24-hour Interview Marathon, hosted by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Rem Koolhaas.
