Now on display at the Jaroslav Fragner Gallery as part of the third Prague Experimental Architecture Biennial is “ZHA: Unbuilt,” an in-depth look into some of the firm’s best projects that could have been.

Arranged within the space by typological concepts (towers, atriums, stadiums, shells, masterplans, ribbons, and bubbles), the exhibition serves as an exploration into the evolution of the work of Zaha Hadid Architects, showing how earlier research and innovations have become the foundations of the firm's architectural projects currently in development.

“ZHA’s drive for innovation stems from experimentation with evolving design processes initiated by the studio four decades ago; a cross-pollination of ideas resulting from ZHA’s fundamentally collaborative approach throughout the practice together with engineers and specialist worldwide,” explain the architects in a press release.

“Showcasing ZHA’s ambitious and expanding repertoire, the exhibition investigates the studio’s iterative design methods that are reinforced by systemic knowledge transfer and a willingness to test new ideas across multiple scales and typologies.”
