Zaha Hadid's journey to the top

  • Comment

To Rome for the opening of Zaha Hadid’s splendid MAXXI, which has had critics metaphorically trampling over each in other in the crush for superlatives

But there was also a more literal trampling during the press tour, when Zaha, radiantly attired in petrol blue Prada, hailed a lift to conduct the scrum of journos to the upper levels.

As the modestly proportioned conveyance was unable to accommodate the vast retinue, there was a Keystone Cops moment as the lift doors slammed shut, forcing hacks into an unseemly dash for the Piranesian staircase.
