Total Fluidity
Seoul Design Olympiad 2008
October 10 – October 30, 2008
Jamsil Sports Complex, Seoul, Korea

NY Projects, Inc. proudly presents Total Fluidity: Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher as an exhibition that presents an overview of Hadid’ and Patrik Schumacher’s work that makes evident the shifts in her body of work. It includes a wide range of mediums: prints, urban plans, furniture, design objects, and video installation. At the outset of her career, Hadid’s architectural practice followed Suprematist and Constructivist ideals. Based on floating lines and planes frozen in time and space, her early representation of architecture presented broken, compound angles with acute interstices that expressed considerable tension. These early projects were most commonly represented in large-format paintings. Her reconsideration of the architectural drawing, through nontraditional floor plans with spatial configurations open to interpretation, had a major impact on her architecture. Since then, she has moved from abstraction and fragmentation to fluidity and seamless complexity.
