From Zaha Hadid Architects: Jaroslav Fragner Gallery and the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague present the third Experimental Architecture Biennial.

The Czech Republic’s only platform for experimental architecture, Biennial includes an exhibition by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), workshops, site-specific pavilion and film screenings.

‘ZHA: Unbuilt’ is a series of exhibitions featuring unrealised designs demonstrating ZHA's on-going design investigation; exploring recent concepts derived from the innovation and research that are the foundations of the firm's architectural works currently in development.

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.
