MAXXI - Zaha Hadid

The most fascinating part of this project for me, is how the plan resembles an organic flow of movement comparable to the aerial photo which shows the location of the museum in relation to Rome and the river a few blocks away.  This spine meanders gently through, whilst still allowing for an art museum where exhibitions can be easily curated and hung.  It reveals itself in the curve of the stairs, the ceiling panels, the   shape of the walls and gently ushers the visitors through the exhibition spaces.  It represents both the flow of the city and the right brained, creative nature of art.  The fact that it took 10 years to complete, leaves hope for the rest of us not to give up when you're onto a good thing.
