Building Consensus -Zaha Hadid Vs. The Real World

“The gulf between what Hadid sees, and enables others to see in her beautifully crafted but highly distorted drawings and paintings, and the realized architecture that results from these two-dimensional fantasias, is vast. The buildings, the few that have been built, seem to exist in a slower, duller universe. Someone has turned the lights on, and the music off, and suddenly the world no longer twinkles, and Hadid’s buildings no longer feel quite so much like spaceships rocketing to galaxies unknown.”
