This exhibition for the Prague Experimental Architecture Biennial is presented as clusters of typological concepts (towers, atriums, stadiums, shells, masterplans, ribbons, and bubbles) that illustrate ZHA’s working methodology.

ZHA’s drive for innovation stems from experimentation with evolving design processes initiated by the studio four decades ago; a cross-pollination of ideas resulting from ZHA’s fundamentally collaborative approach throughout the practice together with engineers and specialist worldwide.

Showcasing ZHA’s ambitious and expanding repertoire, the exhibition investigates the studio’s iterative design methods that are reinforced by systemic knowledge transfer and a willingness to test new ideas across multiple scales and typologies.
