Zaha Hadid Architects have authored several hundred projects – over a period of 30 years – in a unified effort: the quest for architecture to take on the dynamic complexity of contemporary society. At the same time there is a cumulative build up of virtuosity, resolution and refinement. This is a function of the consistency of agenda, ambition and values that allow us to build achievement upon achievement.

The ‘Lotus’ is a system of enfolded furnishings through which one can seduce and engage the immediate and more distant world. This room fluctuates between two extreme states: one which is highly condensed and exclusive of its surroundings and the other which is unfolded, dispersed and interlocked into its environment. Reconfiguration is also a means towards appropriation and personalization.
