Zaha designs V&A installation for London Design Festival

  • Comment

Zaha Hadid Architects has revealed images of a proposed sculpture to be installed in the V&A’s courtyard during London Design Festival

The demountable installation, entitled Crest, will float above the waters of the V&A’s courtyard fountain.

Zaha Hadid said: ‘Crest animates and engages with the V&A’s courtyard and we’re looking forward to seeing the installation inhabited and enjoyed by visitors. 

Once the festival is over, the sculpture will be installed at the Zaha Hadid-designed ME hotel in Dubai.

‘Precision engineered as a pre-stressed aluminum shell of minimum thickness [the scheme] explores the relationships between fluid and Cartesian, solid and void, surface and structure inherent within the ME hotel’s design.’

The London Design Festival takes place between 13 – 21 September.
