Inspiration - Zaha Hadid

Here at bright designlab we like to find inspiration for our work all over the world! I recently was lucky enough to visit a building by one of my personal favorite architects: Zaha Hadid. The MAXXI modern art museum in Rome is stunning. The sculptural quality of the concrete and the hidden light features throughout are just a few of the things that make it worth a visit, as well as just to walk through the building and experience the spaces (let alone the fantastic modern art!). I thought I'd share a little sampling of some of my favorite aspects.

Cheers!

The front of the building, I love how the window in the cantilever reflects the classic roman buildings in the area.
