IN BRIEF: Zaha Hadid Architects


The RIBA's latest exhibition, 'Hardcore: the rise of concrete from utility to luxury', features this design by Zaha Hadid Architects for a new tram station in Strasbourg. The exhibition, which opened this week, is a celebration of concrete in architecture and design. Designed by Block Architecture, it charts the progress of the material - from its first appearance in the ancient world to the extraordinary uses to which it is put today. Other work featured includes the Salk Institute by Louis Kahn, Denys Lasdun's National Theatre and the Blitzcrete aggregate developed by John Outram.
