Neri Oxman la.princezia – Materialecology


I imagine you are all familiar with the groundbreaking architect and designer who looks to nature for inspiration, a.k.a Neri Oxman.

Admit it, the first time you saw a photo of her you said “ooh f*ck shes hot!!..at least for an architect” (depends on ur taste)

Anywayz, Neri la princess (cos the queen place is already taken in the architecture world..if u know what i mean) is giving a lecture you should all attend if possible

Her work across the disciplines of art, science, design, and ecology transforms experimental design into eco-activism. The founder of MATERIALECOLOGY, an interdisciplinary design research initiative, Oxman is an assistant professor at the MIT Media Lab, and her work is part of the permanent collection at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

Update : Zaha signs for Central.Bank.Iraq


remember a few weeks ago when we wrote about Zaha making her first project in Iraq a.k.a where she was born ?

Click here for the Post : “Zaha killin’it in Iraq

“Zaha Hadid signed the agreement to design the new Central Bank of Iraq at a ceremony held at the Iraqi Embassy in London.

The Baghdad-born architect won the project – her first in her native land – 18 months ago and is about to start work on the detailed design.

The bank will stand on the banks of the Tigris and is intended to be a symbol of a new Iraq, though security remains a key design requirement.

It will replace the existing modernist headquarters – designed by Danish practice Dissing & Weitling in 1985 and built from marble-clad reinforced concrete with few exterior openings – which was stormed by insurgents in 2010..
