Zaha Hadid A look into the life and times of one of the most iconoclast designers ever

Flashback Virgile Simon Bertand

“There are 360 degrees, so why stick to one?” -Zaha Hadid

Aquatic Centre, Hufton+Crow

A designer par excellence and an extraordinary human being she created newer paradigms in the design world. An iconoclast by nature she spoke a language of fluidity and larger than life ideas. Zaha Hadid was an Iraqi-British architect who became the first Arab woman to receive the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize. Known for her highly expressive designs marked by sweeping fluid forms of multiple perspective points, she was considered a pioneer in contemporary avant-garde architecture styles. Internationally renowned for her experimental styles and innovative designs, she was the mastermind behind the design of the Aquatic Center for the London 2012 Olympics and the Broad Art Museum in the U.S., among others.

She emerged as a role model for all professional women and especially Muslim women Intelligent and ambitious, she attended the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London eventually starting her own architecture practice by the name of Zaha Hadid Architects which proved to be very successful and employs over 350 people today.

Aquatic Centre, Hufton+Crow

Her innovative designs and experimental styles gained much international notice and within a few years she established herself as a world renowned architect. She also pursued a teaching career. A major success came in 1998 when her design was chosen for the ‘Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art’. This was her first American project, and was the recipient of two awards, the ‘Royal Institute of British Architects Award’ in 2004 and the ‘American Architecture Award’ from ‘The Chicago Athenaeum’ the next year. Hadid’s personal list of achievements numbers over 100 prestigious awards and honors. She emerged as a role model for all professional women and especially Muslim women. Zaha died of a heart attack in a Miami hospital on 31 March 2016. She was once the highest paid architect in the world…a woman who truly had the world at her feet.

Striving towards “Good Design”

The Tiles of India in conversation with Asit Karekar, founder of the AUK Design Studio Interviewed By: TTI Photographs BY: Courtesy AUK Design Studio


sit Karekar founded the AUK DESIGN STUDIO in 2010. The company has been a part of diverse range of residential & commercial interior designing projects since its establishment. The studio’s driving force comes from a team of individuals with extensive knowledge and expertise in interior design and architecture. Aspiring to create work that circles around craftsmanship and visually intricate yet simple construction details, their objective is to find the best means to a “GOOD DESIGN”.

Indian architecture is going through a very interesting phase as far as innovation is concerned. What are the most amazing trends that are emerging according to you? Open concepts are really in vogue now. Clients these days prefer open volume of spaces over privacy and enclosures, especially when it comes to bungalow design. The cross flow of the wind, the amount of natural light pouring in, a large footprint to move around with ease, application of more rustic and raw looking material such as concrete facades, open brick elevations etc., all the above with the idea of “Minimalism” are the most amazing trends now. Materials such as engineered and laminated timber, handmade bricks and ocean plastic were very big last year internationally. Could you tell us about any possible adaptations in your work of such unique materials?

The trends of “Sustainability” & “Green Building” have been taken up since a long time by a few well known architects who knew the impact of these issues on the environment We are always trying to innovate and learn how to implement new material with international and sustainable standards, innovative solid wood panels like CLT (Cross Laminated Timber). CLT offers design flexibility and low environmental impacts. For these reasons, crosslaminated timber is proving to be a highly advantageous alternative to

conventional materials like concrete, masonry, or steel. We are in the process of trying to incorporate materials with similar standards as per the availability in an ever growing market. How important is functionality vis-a-vis aesthetics to the modern Indian consumer. Do you feel that newer paradigms are emerging here? When it comes to new standards, perspectives, set of ideas emerging every day or over a period of time, we as designers have to keep in mind that the form of an object we design has to follow the object’s function, these days the trend is reversed with the idea of the aesthetic factor being primary and the functionality playing the second fiddle... and not to my surprise the trend is short lived. The modern Indian consumer needs to be explained the importance of the functionality aspect, some agree to SEP-OCT 2016 The Tiles of India 27


it, some don’t, it’s more a matter of choice these days. If you are able to bend these rules to the maximum yet maintain the functionality factor then in my opinion that makes us stand apart from the rest. What inspires you? What would be a dream project? Simple yet elegant detailing we see in everyday life inspires us, we aspire to make ones daily habitat fun and 28 The Tiles of India SEP-OCT 2016

interesting in ways we have not done before and hence we strive to approach every project in its own unique way depending upon what the clients want. It’s the joy on a clients face when the keys are being handed over that inspires us to do it differently the next time. Ideally the Dream Project would be where a client comes up and says make mistakes…and innovate through them...!! I presume that

Simple yet elegant detailing we see in everyday life inspires us, we aspire to make ones daily habitat fun and interesting


would be our best work some day. What do you think about humanitarian design? Do you think it will be a major influencer in the near future? It can be if we decide to be individuals not governed by commercial factors. Imagine if we could have a program or a facility as a fraternity for the betterment of people who need us rather than the

people who want us. If every one of us creatives does one such humanitarian project in a year or two, we as individuals will move ahead in life rather than just excelling in what helps us provide for our family and loved ones. Do you see these trends making a long lasting impact on the way Indian architects design? The trends of “Sustainability” &

“Green Building” have been taken up since a long time by a few well known architects who knew the impact of these issues on the environment, we as the next generation of Interior Designers & Architects have to step up to the task to make the impact last even longer.

Architect Dipen Gada shares inspiration that drives him for unique designs and takes us through one of his remarkable project The Cube House INTERVIEWED BY: TTI PHOTOGRAPHS BY: Courtesy DGA

Ar. Dipen Gada DGA

“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free. Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls….” - Rabindranath Tagore. On being asked about his inspiration, Dipen Gada quotes the above and says that, “Creation of an environment that would surrender to nature and give unforgettable experience is a thought which drives me for unique designs. There is a constant search of exploring the uncharted and concluding beyond the conventional.” It is this same desire to create the unconventional that inspired The Cube House. Situated in Baroda, the inspiration for this house is the simple cube. The modern aesthetic of the house employs a combination of exposed RCC and white plastered 30 THE TILES OF INDIA SEP-OCT 2016

Environmental transparencies at the ground level, created through courtyards and large openings help in passively cooling the internal spaces. A raised entry threshold signifies the entry into the house. The flooring here is of tiles of multi-colored river

The dining room, which is part of the open planned ground floor, overlooks a small courtyard, which adjoins the entry vestibule. It also overlooks a huge double heighted semi-covered courtyard having a water body. Pergolas in the double height slab, coupled with a screen of aluminum fins, create changing patterns of light and shadow that has a dramatic impact. The project is also a very good example of environmentally friendly design with openings being placed to maximize the inflow of breeze, while reducing direct sunlight. Compact fluorescent lamps have been used in most of the spaces to reduce energy consumption and green rated air-conditioning systems have been used. An effort has also been made to use natural materials that are easily available. A great believer in humanitarian design he says that, “Humanitarian architecture is for improving the welfare and happiness of a population through the art and practice of designing… thereby alleviating suffering and transform conditions into collectively preferred ones. It acts to create a built environment that is for the betterment of society. There are mixed results for adapting these designs. Thus, the concept still needs to be emphasized among the people. We agree...

When Art and Design meet Lionel Smit is a South African artist, known for his contemporary portraiture executed through large sculptures and canvasses

Coordination By: Sheetal Joshi Photographs BY: Courtesy The Brand

SEP-OCT 2016 The Tiles of India 35



ionel Smit is best known for his monumental portraits executed through large canvases & sculptures. Born in 1982 in Pretoria, South Africa, Lionel was exposed to a world of sculpture by his father who is a renowned sculptor. Consequently, Lionel and his father could be seen working from his studio near the family home. ers us an entry point into the variety and richness that lies beneath every face we encounter in life, whether applied in bronze or in paint. The blending of techniques across genres is a display of Smit’s work in multiple media, all bearing visible overlap. His paintings start with abstract lines and swaths of colour that establish a base for the subsequently overlaid image of a face or bust – in most cases posed by anonymous models from the Cape Malay community. For Smit, the Cape Malay woman epitomises hybrid identity within a South African context, and reflects the disintegrating construction of identity within our increasingly globalised world. His work is loaded with both historical and aesthetic precedent; clearly focused on the dialogue between the figurative and expressive abstract. Smit thus translates his own understanding of identity – drawing from images in his daily surrounds. Smit’s subject matter is consistent. The people he paints or sculpts



possess a particular quality that appeals to his visual sensitivity, but nothing more in the way of social influence. The sitter’s face acts, quite simply, as a vessel for Smit’s experimentation with technique. In regards to sculpture, Smit’s treatment of the medium reveals it to be especially well suited to the translation of his painterly activities into sculpture. Smit’s bronzes are created using the lost wax casting method – one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques. Patinas commonly available to artists working in bronze include natural browns, blacks and greens. However, considering the importance of colour to Smit in his painting, he uses alternative methods that result in a unique fusion of intensely saturated patinas onto the bronze. Brilliant streaks of blues and greens enrich the grooves of an ear, while the natural shadow of an eyelid is intensified by the deepening of rich black patinas. Combing his ability to manipulate the patination process and his focused enthusiasm for surface gradations – Smit’s avantgarde approach to the medium has


Smit’s bronzes are created using the lost wax casting method – one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques allowed him to consistently push the envelope. Smit continues his visual and tactile exploration of hybrid identity and its ever changing and emerging nature within South Africa’s psycho-social landscape. While retaining all their austerity and peaceful aesthetic, Smit’s figures remain highly charged with the emotive and gestural energy of his creative process. Today Smit is based in Strand, Cape Town, Smit’s process as an artist today remains adaptive, inventive, and physically engaging. Through this he has achieved success all over the world including sell-out exhibitions in London and Hong Kong. Smit’s works have been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London where it received the Viewer’s Choice Award, as well as selected as the ‘face’ of the BP Portrait Award 2013 for all campaigns. In recent years he has also been honoured with a Ministerial Award from the Department of Culture for Visual Art. A highlight of his career has been the publication of one of his paintings on the cover of Christie’s Auction Catalogue. Over the past 10 years he has established a substantial international following with collectors ranging from the Standard Chartered Bank to Laurence Graff Art Collection at Delaire Graff Wine Estate.

To think as a pregnant woman, was the design brief from Dr. Gauri Aggarwal (Gynaecologist & IVF Specialist) when she first met us with the requirements of her dream project; “Seeds of In-nocence: An IVF & Surrogacy Centre”. The mood swings, anxiety and increased irritability of a pregnant woman or a childless couple could be forgotten as soon as one enters into the positive & cheerful environment of the clinic, was the main concern while designing. The upper floors have stark Marsala coloured lacquered panels with the reflection of moving sky all day long which creates a magnificent playfulness along with the backlit perforated box in the centre clad with ACP sheet making the structure dynamic in appearance. The perforated ACP sheets have been

by Elior Group and redesigned by Mathieu Lehanneur, the Café is a new venue linking the Carrousel and the Tuileries Gardens with the Louvre and its collection of masterpieces. In this monumental setting of 150m², with its vertiginous ceilings and marble tiled floor punctuated by

In the alcoves of the tall historic windows, the presence of lacquered wooden benches upholstered in fabric alongside mat-white furniture, is almost “blasphemous in this palace of color massive columns, the designer has succeeded in creating a prestigious cafe on a human scale. After designing the Café Art Science in Boston, which is currently in the running for the “outstanding bar” award in the US1, Mathieu Lehanneur went on to tackle the

remodeling of the Café Mollien in the Louvre, the most prestigious monument and museum in Paris. Café Mollien comprises an L-shaped dining room and a 230 terrace offering the best view of the Louvre Pyramid. Inside, 66 seats are arranged around a magnificent brushed-brass, acrylic

lighting structure, with organic-like extensions stretching up to 4.5 meters high. The designer describes these as “three, large pale-pink eggs; luminous and translucent, floating in space and inhabiting the void that separates us from the ceiling, and act as a signal in the Parisian perspective. “ In the alcoves of the tall historic windows, the presence of lacquered wooden benches upholstered in fabric alongside mat-white furniture, is almost “blasphemous in this palace of color”, and seems to set and accentuate the rhythm of the space. The white of the furniture is also echoed in the marble of the 10meter long bar at the entrance. Throughout his various assignments, notably in the Church of Melle (UNESCO World Heritage) and the Château Borely in Marseille, and his next mission within the context of the complete remodeling of the Grand Palais in Paris2, Lehanneur has proven his ability to re-examine and update the iconic monuments of our heritage.

event was led by designer, architect and artist Ugo la Pietra. Ugo la Pietra said that, “Artists in general, and perhaps architects in particular, must create works that have something to say and are not ends in themselves, while this aspect of “territorial design” is closely linked to the local area with its natural, historical and cultural resources, architects unfortunately often forget this and focus excessively on the idea that “creativity = absolute freedom” which in reality is not always true,” he said. Irish architect Shelley Mcnamara, founder of Grafton architects together with Yvonne Farrell, was the guest speaker at a conference entitled “An Arena for Learning: Grafton Architects” held as part of the Cersaie 2016 “building, dwelling, thinking” programme. Introduced by Fulvio Irace, professor of History of Architecture at Milan polytechnic,

Shelley Mcnamara discussed the theme of Education: How can the architecture of universities and educational establishments help to improve young people’s education in an increasingly complex world.” The six winners and the recipient of the honourable mention in the third edition of the Adi Ceramics design award were announced during the event and the awards presented directly by the panel of judges. The Adi Ceramics design award, launched in collaboration with Adi - Associazione Per il Disegno Industriale as part of the cultural activities of the ‘building, dwelling thinking’ programme, honours the most innovative products showcased by the Italian ceramic industry. The winners of the floor and wall tile sector were the companies Ornamenta, with the product “Oplus” created in collaboration with Alessio

Zanzarella; piemme, with its “bits & pieces” designed by Gordon Guillaumier; Viva by Emil ceramica, which impressed the judges for its “l’h” surface designed by Giancarlo Macchioni. Cersaie 2016 reached 106,599 admissions in five days. Foreign operators exceeded 50,000 admissions, new record passing this year of 106,000 admissions. The attraction of the fair, together with the good economic situation on the different international markets, led to a double positive sign to the visitors, both Italian and foreign ones from over 170 countries of origin of visitors. Cersaie is an important milestone in the architectural, interior design and installation landscape and was a great success.
