Zaha Hadid Architects unveiled a new experimental structure as part of Milan’s White In The City Exhibition during the city’s annual Salone del Mobile. Held at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in the heart of Milan’s design district, the exhibition explored the contemporary use of white color in design and architecture across various locations in the city. Named the Thallus – after the Greek word for flora that is not differentiated into stem and leaves, the sculpture is the latest in ZHA’s investigations using 3D printing technology. Thallus continues Zaha Hadid Architects’ Computational Design (ZHA CoDe) group’s research into generating geometries through robotic-assisted design.

Marvel at the Scope, Scale and Splendor of Ancient Rome With This Virtual Fly-Through

12:00 - 10 May, 2017

We can all recognise the great architectural landmarks of Ancient Rome: the Pantheon, the Colosseum, Trajan's Column – but do you know how they originally appeared or, perhaps more interestingly, how they sat within the context of the historic city? In this captivating 14-minute-long virtual fly-through by the Kahn Academy and Smarthistory, a YouTube channel dedicated to historical video essays, the ancient splendor of the Eternal City (at around 320AD) is presented alongside expert commentary.

Venice: A Provocative Paradox

09:44 - 21 April, 2017
Venice: A Provocative Paradox

Moderator: Louise Braverman, FAIA
Panel: Cynthia Davidson, James Biber, FAIA, Max Levy, FAIA
Often the first reaction to Venice is one of feeling overwhelmed by the astonishing beauty of her existence. Yet if we dig a bit deeper inherent contradictions begin to appear. How do we make rational sense of a city that floats on water? What are the features that contribute to our incredulity, and what can we learn from them? From the original muddy wilderness of the 5th century to a beguiling built environment, Venice remains 1,500 years later, a provocative paradox of visceral and visual inspiration.

In today's culture of narcissism and celebrity it's an assumed expectation that faces can be put to names. Even in 16th Century Europe, the large majority of notable persons had a likeness made of themselves and displayed for posterity – save for architects, it seems. Take, for instance, Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) – the Renaissance style-setter and author of the groundbreaking treatise The Four Books on Architecture, the seminal text of which inspired the likes of Thomas Jefferson. If challenged, could you easily put a face to Palladio's name? There is no accurate, agreed-upon "official" portrait of the architect – until now, that is.
