Luke-warm lecture

  • Comment
astragal

Back down in fair London, Astragal was slightly disappointed by Zaha Hadid's performance at the Architecture Foundation's 'Real Architecture' lecture last week.

While her well-known personality was evident in spades, some observers felt that the First Lady of architecture might have used the talk to go into her influences and inspiration and explain how she came up with her distinctive style a little bit more than she clearly wanted to. A vast array of people - ranging from students to some of London's aspiring architectural names - turned up for the Deyan Sudjic-chaired event, and one cannot help but feel many of them would have gone away disappointed.
