In pursuit after Zaha Hadid’s inspiration Sources 2
In this post I present MVRDV’s ”Kissing Towers” in Donau City ,Vienna and Zaha Hadid;s “Stone Towers” in Cairo, Egypt.
In my future posts I will continue my journey uncovering Zaha Hadid’s Inspiration Sources.
Zaha Hadid is today the most widely publicized and influential architect by Google test.
It’s not the formal similarity, why I pose the two projects, and I don’t have the intention to insinuate that Zaha Hadid copied from another.
My goal is to encourage the developing of “Tools” for a new architectural planning process that I call Conscious Inspiration

Here’s some more information from Zaha Hadid Architects about the “Stone Towers” :
“Inspired by the patterns and textures of ancient Egyptian stonework, the north and south facades of each tower will be covered with recesses and protrusions emphasising the effects of light and shadow on the surfaces”
“Ancient Egyptian stonework incorporates a vast array of patterns and textures that, when illuminated by the intense sunlight of the region, creates animated displays of light and shadow”
