Zaha Hadid. Mostra personale

when

2 October 2009 - 1 March 2010

where

Palazzo della Ragione, Padua

Zaha Hadid was the guest of honor at the fourth edition of the “Barbara Cappochin” International Architecture Biennial.

The venue for her accompanying personal show, Palazzo della Ragione, the medieval town hall of Padua, made for a fascinating design challenge, considering the historical nature of the building. The striking theatrical setting of the exhibition made an excellent backdrop for the numerous and highly innovative projects of one of the world's leading deconstructivist architects. Iranian by birth and a naturalized UK citizen after moving to London in the late 70s, Zaha Hadid was the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize, in 2004. The interpreter of a visionary aesthetic, Hadid experiments with new spatial concepts that intensify the existing urban skyline with unprecedented expressive forms, working in architecture and in every design field, from the urban scale to product design, from interiors to furnishings, from buildings to cities and back again. UniFor supported the project as a technical sponsor.

New Opening - UniFor Showroom Paris

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, UniFor is restoring and renewing the historic showroom of its French branch, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1979. The newly renovated spaces has been inaugurated during Paris Design Week, in celebration of both UniFor’s first 50 years - the history of which is illustrated in a prestigious book published by Skira, “UniFor. A Commitment to Architecture” - and its 40 years on the French market at its historic and prestigious Paris location on Rue des Saint-Peres. It was 1978 when the Molteni family founded UniFor France and entrusted Afra and Tobia Scarpa with the task of transforming the former residential apartment at 6 Rue des Saints-Pères into spaces suitable for receiving its clients and presenting the UniFor collection. The showroom was launched the following year. The renovation project, overseen by the architect Simone Agresta, leaves Afra and Tobia Scarpa's original project intact while reinterpreting the spaces in a modern key
