Zaha Hadid Architects is a true leader in its field, acclaimed for the ambition and originality of projects such as Galaxy SOHO in Beijing and the London Aquatics Centre. We recently produced a short film for Zaha Hadid Architects, capturing the practice’s unique personality and culture.
The film profiles Zaha Hadid Architects through contributions from leading figures within the practice (including Zaha Hadid herself), and through the prism provided by some of its world famous creations – such as Dongdaemun Design Park in Seoul, the aforementioned Beijing Galaxy, and Hong Kong’s Innovation Tower.
To capture dramatic original images of these projects, Spectrecom filmmaker Chris Karageorgiou travelled to south-east Asia, before continuing the shoot in London at Zaha Hadid Architects’ offices.
The film shows the exciting mix of youth, vibrancy, experience and intelligence that exists within the practice, and that culture was pivotal in informing Chris’s approach to directing this project: “Perfectionism and precision are key for the team at Zaha Hadid Architects, and they expect the same when you work with them.”
With the Zaha Hadid Architect’s team all extremely busy in the course of their own work, Chris stationed himself at their offices for the duration of post-production, in order to receive and implement feedback as quickly as possible. For Chris, it was a unique experience to get a first-hand feel for the culture that exists within the Zaha Hadid Architects studio
“You have incredible minds working around you. They understand art, they understand visual communication, and it was really enjoyable being part of that creative hub.”
