The installation was conceived as an inverted landscape of complex curvilinear geometry, seamlessness and smooth transitions – integrating the diverse forms of Hadid’s unique brand of urbanism to connect disparate cityscapes. The title of the exhibition was in some ways a deliberate misnomer, as her quest for total fluidity was fragmented in order to be explored: the installation deconstructed the organic forms into a series of suspended vertical elements which, like time-lapse photography, captured moments in the transitions of the piece.
