More projects by Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid Architects have created a unique chamber music hall specially designed to house solo performances of the exquisite music of Johann Sebastian Bach. A voluminous ribbon swirls within the room, carving out a spatial and visual response to the intricate relationships of Bach’s harmonies. As the ribbon careens above the performer, cascades into the ground and wraps around the audience, the original room as a box is sculpted into fluid spaces swelling,merging, and slipping through one another.

Thicket Installation in Manchester, Tennessee by Sanders Pace Architecture (designed using Rhino)

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Article source: Sanders Pace Architecture

Objective

This project was submitted to an open call for proposals for Pod Art installations at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.  Our proposal sought to create a reprieve from the visual stimulation present at the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.  The installation provided a spatially interactive experience – one which can be simultaneously viewed and occupied.  A 30′ x 30′ gridded field of 1 1/2″ diameter bamboo poles defined the installation while selectively removed zones created privacy and enclosure within an otherwise vast, undefined 600+ acre event.  The tight placement of poles also provided dappled shade projecting into internal spaces located within the gridded field.  Ultimately, This dense bamboo grid created an inhabitable thicket to be experienced and explored by the festivalgoer.
