Zaha Hadid Computation and Design Research Group (ZHCODE) will be the second 'turn' in the Digital Turn exhibition series, starting 25 July 2018.
Mon – Fri: 9.00am – 6.00pm
Sat: 10.00am – 5.00pm
ZHCODE is the computation and design research group for Zaha Hadid Architects. Set up by Nils Fischer, Shajay Bhooshan and Patrik Schumacher in 2007, CODE forefronts architectural experimentation by putting into practice knowledge in programming, geometry and mathematics to find physically, economically and feasible solutions to architectural problems.
The exhibition is in two parts;
The first relates to what the group calls 'Tectonics'. A complex term that not only expresses how a structure is built but also how it plays a role in place making. The exhibition will showcase the group's research, design and construction process of their work on the Mathematics, The Winton Gallery, Science Museum.
The second is about 'Semiotics', as they move towards applying the physical design and construction aspect of their work to the social context in which they will exist. The exhibition will feature some of their residential housing models which have not yet been exhited, alongside other works.
The exhibition and programme of events is curated by the exhibitions team at The Building Centre and is supported by The Built Environment Trust.
