Zaha Hadid, two times winner of the Stirling Prize, celebrated the launch of her third London project, the Roca London Gallery, with a spectacular opening event on 13 October. Spanish brand Roca commissioned Zaha Hadid Architects to bring the Gallery to life. The launch event, with over 250 guests from the architecture and design world, was replete with modern Spanish food, margaritas and cuba libras , and cool sounds from DJ Mariano Robles. Zaha Hadid’s inspiration was elemental water in all its forms and the result is a powerful and influential space in the heart of London’s Chelsea Harbour. The design is not just purely visual, but also uses the art of precision and control to help the visitor understand the relationship between the architecture of the space, and the design of Roca bathroom products.
