How do you make a soft and flowy building?


Just ask architect Zaha Hadid!  She gives a masterclass to architectural students on how to take a Mobius strip/ Klein bottle shape and turn it into a real functional building.  Once again, her architecture is beyond inspiring.  Heydar Aliyev cultural center looks like a gentle waterfall from the sky.  The ceiling structure seems like a handkerchief dripping down on some kind of ridgid structure and enveloping it in the process.  A building manages to look soft while it's inherent quality is rigid.
