Supported by the Hong Kong Green Building Council, the Zaha Hadid Architects: Vertical Urbanism would be held in Hong Kong from 19 January to 3 April 2022 .

Organised by the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI), HKDI Gallery is a dynamic exhibition space with unique vision.

With contemporary design as the cornerstone, they present a series of top-notch exhibitions every year ranging on graphic design, architecture, fashion, product design, multimedia and so on.

In collaboration with Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) from the UK, HKDI Gallery is going to present this thrilling exhibition - Zaha Hadid Architects: Vertical Urbanism. The late world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid (1950 - 2016) injected a new level of dynamism into architecture. Her work has been explosive, fluid, and boundless forcefully questioning the need for urban fortifications. The investigative spirit on which Hadid based her career continues in Zaha Hadid Architects’ ground-breaking work around the world. Vertical Urbanism by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) curated especially for the HKDI showcases this exploration on the theme of urbanism by presenting a range of approaches 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 will also include a summary of the ongoing research and development within the studio, often incorporating collaborations with renowned scientific institutions developing new innovations in robotics, artificial intelligence, and digital fabrication which in turn informs the studio’s design process. On display will be technical drawings and diagrams, computer-generated visualisations, physical models, video projections, and virtual reality experiences.
