Parametric Space by Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid has created Parametric Space at the Danish Architecture Center as part of a major exhibition entitled Zaha Hadid – World Architecture on her design process and work. The collection of designer objects, iterative models and photographic panels of work is meant to highlight the source of Hadid’s work as the manifestation of progressive digital and geometric universe.

The installation created specifically for the exhibit is an immersive parametric experience that responds to visitors’ movements in space with a dynamic projections of light and moving funnels. A collaboration with the design offices of Kollision, CAVI and Wahlberg, the dark space belies the expressive flux of the membrane-like ceiling and light particles inhabiting the surface of the architectural plane.

The room is rigged with two laser scanners that record information about exhibit-goers positions in space; a data set then processed to calculate the heights of four actuators that push and pull cylindrical volumes beneath the topside skin. The color and intensity of light articulates the cylinder height to create a total virtual surface. The experience of Parametric Space is intended to mimic the fundamentals of Hadid’s impossibly dynamic and still tangible built work – surrealistic in quality and a vivid product of contemporary architectural language.
