網上3D互動展覽 3D Virtual Exhibition:


Zaha Hadid Architects(ZHA)延續扎哈.哈迪德(Zaha Hadid)的探索精神於不同的建築項目。是次ZHA為香港知專設計學院(HKDI)策「Zaha Hadi Architects:城市境築」展覽,向觀眾現在人口稠密的大都會裡,如何以不同策略開闢充滿生機且符合可持續發展社區理念的城市空間,開啟廿一世紀都市主義為題的對話。


展覽重點將聚焦於 ZHA 過去十五年所設計的高樓大廈項目,深度剖析與城市環境息息相關的設計策略,探討它們如何從建築密度、地面交界、中庭與連廊、建築幕牆和可持續發展等方面,在以垂直高樓為主的空間裡,建立起可持續發展的活力大都會。網上互動展覽:

About this Exhibition

The investigative spirit on which Zaha Hadid based her career continues in Zaha Hadid Architects’ ground-breaking work around the world. ‘Vertical Urbanism’, curated by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) for the Hong Kong Design Institute, showcases this exploration on the theme of urbanism by presenting a range of design strategies taken by ZHA to create vibrant and sustainable community orientated spaces within dense urban conditions, opening up a dialogue around urbanism in the 21st century.

The exhibition begins with an overview of the ongoing research and development within the studio, often incorporating collaborations with renowned scientific institutions developing innovations in robotics, artificial intelligence, and digital fabrication which in turn informs the studio’s design process. A selection of key projects by ZHA is then presented via a large-scale projection. The presentation reveals series of architectural models, highlighting the studio’s range of work across culture, sport, transport, campus + headquarters, and masterplan projects.

The exhibition culminates with an in-depth presentation of tall buildings designed by ZHA over the past 15 years. Design strategies related to the urban context are highlighted as ways in which to facilitate a more sustainable and vibrant urbanism for the vertical city: density, ground interface, atria + bridges, façade, and sustainability. 3D Virtual Exhibition:
