Zaha Hadid & Constructivism

Russian Constructivism originated in 1919, it seemed to envisage dream cities of the future and led to unrealized schemes for social rebuilding. Design was seen as symbolic design was used in the terms of a metaphor. The machine aesthetic was born.

Zaha Hadid creates a wide variety of pieces from living, architecturally inspired home ware, sculptural jewelry and innovative installations and interior. She pushes the boundaries of traditional design methodologies. Zaha Hadid has won the Sterling prize twice in 2010 and 2011, she was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture prize in 2004.


Zaha Hadid’s first building was the Rosethal centre for contemporary art, it has been described as a pure form and the use of simple colours and shapes determine how people move around the space.
