It all started at the beginning of this century….or maybe even before….

Zaha Hadid designed a morphological structure I like to call the “Aggressive snake motif” (a floating  structure characterized by a sloping edge)    she duplicate it in her designs from time to time, with minor changes…. 

Here are two sketches, published in previous post of mine. they examine Zaha Hadid’s inspiration sources for the“Aggressive snake motif”….
