if you haven't heard of zaha hadid, YOU HAVE NOW! she's the most amazing architect since frank lloyd wright, and she starts her creative process with HUGE paintings - and i mean HUGE! j + i were lucky enough to catch her one woman exhibit in the entire rotunda of the guggenheim museum this past fall in nyc. aside from overwhelming, her work is so geometric and organic at the same time. i mean, this woman is a genius - i'd venture to say that her work will be bigger than einstein. above is her rendering for the performing arts centre in abu dhabi. you can check out zaha hadid here. [source] if i could pick her brain for the day i don't think there would be enough time.
