Zaha Hadid Architects to gather women in architecture to reflect on their “unbuilt contributions”

Zaha Hadid Architects has announced it will be bringing together some of the most innovative women in architecture at the London Festival of Architecture to “reflect on and highlight the achievements, ideas, and dialogues of unrealised projects which have never been built, yet profoundly contribute to the built environment.” 

Taking place on 18 June 2017, the series of conversations has been curated by Melodie Leung of Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), and will be hosted at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London. 

Commenting on the concept behind the upcoming talk, ZHA stated “Any design practice, as well as the architecture industry as a whole, exists as the result of a continually evolving body of work and collaborative associations.  

“To consider the impact and intention of this process before they fall from memory, is to acknowledge how the ideas which shape tomorrow are rooted in the transformation of the designs of yesterday and today.” 

Also on display in the Ace Hotel Gallery Bar will be a site-specific exhibition featuring projects not yet realised, designed by the participating architects. Such names will include Alison Brooks, Jane Duncan, Manijeh Verghese, and Tatiana von Preussen.
