Hadid (1950-2016) was one of the foremost figures in recent architecture. Inspired by Russian Constructivism, the Iraqi-born British architect designed buildings with groundbreaking futuristic forms. Hadid's artwork proved a theoretical testing ground for her sweeping architectural designs and geometric inventions, which were at times unrealized due to their lofty concepts. The current lot emulates Hadid's design for the Deutsche Guggenheim exhibition, in which spheres pass through a square and create new perspectives for the viewer.
