Hadid "Backs the Bid"

Just after winning the commission for the London Architecture Foundation building, Architectural Record reports that Zaha Hadid has been chosen to design the Aquatic Center for London’s 2012 Olympic Bid. The 20,000 seat venue, located in the Stratford area of East London will be built regardless of London’s success in winning the Olympics. The buildings form is reportedly inspired by “the flow of water prevalent on the building’s riverside location.” (groan) If Zaha Hadid was a band, (The Zaha Hadids) I think she’d be running the risk of over-exposure. Admittedly, she does great work, I loved her Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center, but for some reason, I’m kind of turned off by her recent designs and they seem to just keep coming…
