Zaha Embedded

The new garden extension of the Ordrupgaard Museum at Charlottenlund, just west of Copenhagen, shows world-renowned, Iraqi-born, British architect, Zaha Hadid, in a new, more landscape-oriented mood and it suits her architecture.

Designed together with her now constant design partner, Patrick Schumaker, the building seems moulded, embedded in the garden landscape there, like a spontaneous geological landfall.

A soft and rounded concrete structure, it complements beautifully the brick and timber architecture of the main house, to which it is attached.

What Zaha is interested in, with the series of landscape and garden projects she has now worked on, is how the built form can become embedded in its close surroundings.
