Hadid genius

Library of the Faculty of Economics. My love of Zaha Hadid architecture is absolute. Before that, I saw only one of her masterpieces - the building of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome. But the library turned out to be incomparable in scale. She justified our entire trip to Vienna, making me experience a thrill comparable to the first kiss. I do not understand how you can think of this! Draw a picture, okay. Brush, canvas, idea. Make a photo, generally garbage - a second of work. But to come up and design such a building is an incredible talent! Such an ease of form that concrete becomes a feather, the walls lean on incredible corners, you find yourself in a spaceship and at the same time in an eastern house 2,000 years ago. Waves of stairs and windows take you far beyond thought. How!?
