preview IMM ideal houses by Zaha Hadid and Naoto Fukasawa

Zaha Hadid and Naoto Fukasawa build the ideal houses cologne 2007.

The British star architect Zaha Hadid and the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa are the stars of the ideal houses 2007. Find here the video

Last week, we were invited by Kölnmesse to go to London in order to join the presentation of new designs of Zaha Hadid and Naoto Fukasawa at an exclusive preview.

At first, Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher presented a dozen of older designs and realisations as for example the Vitra Feuerwache in Weil am Rhein, the phaeno Museum of Science in Wolfsburg and the University Library in Seville.

Finally, the conversation turned to their designs of the ideal houses 2007 and we saw for the first time the breath-taking organic cube, jointly designed by Hadid and Schumacher.

Their special intention is to create a compact house-system with a complex symmetry at the same time. Density and transparency are equally attached importance, leading to the creation of a living and vivid house with a lot of transparency.

During their explanations and questions time, Naoto Fukasawa took part in the discussion being connected live from Tokyo with the audience.

At first he gave a summary of his product and interior designs, before starting with the explanation of the idea of the ideal houses 2007 in a power-point presentation.

Fukasawa lays the focus of the interior design on the interaction between human being and nature. Between the individual and his surrounding stand (utility) objects, that are integrated in everyday life, without distracting from the essential. Purism and functional reduction are in the centre of his design.

Unfortunately, Hadid and Schumacher were in a hurry and could therefore not listen to the explanations of Fukasawa to the end. Nevertheless, the meeting with one of the leading authorities of contemporary architecture and the exceptional Japanese designer was an exciting event that we summarized for you in the following video.
