Zaha Hadid Launches a Prefabricated Dining Pavilion at Design Miami... and WOW.

The first in a series of limited edition pre-crafted pavilions and homes launches at Design Miami/2015.

Conceived by design and real estate developer Robbie Antonio, the Revolution Project unites more than 30 of the world’s preeminent architects, artists, and designers to create a series of technologically advanced yet cost-efficient living spaces.

Named ‘volu’, Zaha Hadid’s contribution to the collection is a contemporary dining pavilion. the structure presents a bold silhouette, forming a typical fusion of design, lightweight engineering, and precision fabrication. containing bespoke furniture, the design continues a rational, geometric production by embedding the tectonics of manufacture within the form itself.

Defined by sophisticated digital processes, the pavilion has been developed in such a way that its components are, at most, singly curved. such innovations were computer programmed to integrate fabrication constraints into the design, while enabling engineering feedback in an iterative delivery process. consequently, this allows for comprehensive design development of complex and expressive forms through the bending of flat sheet materials.

Comprised of a series of structural bands collecting at the spine and expanding overhead, the patterning of the pavilion is guided by the varied structural loading conditions. through analysis of the geometry under load, the pavilion’s topology is digitally optimized to remove unnecessary material, resulting in the lightest possible design solution — an organic structural logic that recreates the many of the same principles found in nature.

In America, & throughout the world, women are drastically underrepresented in STEAM fields, as well as in positions of power & influence.  We must do our part to begin to narrow the gap!  #WomenInSTEAM is dedicated to celebrating the women who are making their mark in the world... standing tall in a crowd of men & innovating in ways that energize us all.  Ladies, let's inspire the next generation of girls!  Lets show them that smart is beautiful, confidence is key, and independence is living!
