Zaha Hadid Retrospective Shows In Venice

In contrast with the classical ornate interior décor of the Palazzo Franchetti in Venice, the designs of Zaha Hadid stand as fiercely futuristic and sleek. Hadid is widely known for being one of the greatest female architects – as the first woman to achieve the Pritzker Architecture Prize and to receive the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects. A retrospective exhibition of Hadid will run in the palazzo, alongside the Venice Architecture Biennale, until November 27. It will feature paintings, drawings and models of her work – both finished and unfinished.

For the lovers of wine: La Cité du Vin

Bordeaux will become the capital of wine on 1st June 2016 with the opening of La Cité du Vin. It’s the world’s first cultural center devoted to wine, designed by Parisian architects XTU and funded by its home city of Bordeaux. But this is more than just a very pretty tasting room (though, yes, there are three of them in the facility). La Cité du Vin places the history of wine within an immersive environment that blends theatricality—3D imagery, aroma diffusion—with multifaceted exhibitions exploring wine as a societal force, sculptor of landscapes, an inspiration to artists, and source of myth.
