Zaha Hadid - Contemporary Art Center - iPad App
Our next release in the Planet Architecture Series features the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati by Zaha Hadid.
The Contemporary Arts Center, completed in 2003, received immediate critical acclaim for its visionary form and innovative spatial concepts. Undoubtedly, its success was a determining factor in Hadid receiving the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the most prestigious architectural award, in 2004. Today, the Contemporary Arts Center remains a seminal building in Zaha Hadid's rapidly growing body of work.
This app is a virtual tour of Zaha Hadid's Contemporary Arts Center. It features an intuitive interface which presents an extensive collection of photographs, virtual reality panoramas, drawings, renderings, and animations. In addition, video interviews with Zaha Hadid, Markus Dochantschi (project architect), and Charles Desmarais (CAC Director) bring forth the ideas and challenges of this innovative building.
