Zaha Hadid Architects in collaboration with Dongdaemun Design Plazain Seoul, Korea presents 'Meta-Horizons: The Future Now1. Designed by ZHA as a catalyst for the instigation and exchange of ideas and for new technologies and media to be explored, DDP opened in 2014 and has become a cultural hub and meeting place at the centre of the Dongdaemun district in Seoul. The inaugural exhibition of DDP’s new Design Museum, 'Meta-Horizons: The Future Now' continues DDP’s commitment to showcasing pioneering design, technological innovation and contemporary creativity.Exploring ZHA’s work across multiple fields, from digital technology to artificial intelligence and virtual reality, the exhibition outlines ZHA’s recent designs, process, and research that incorporates immersive technologies, participatory design and new fabrication techniques. The exhibition details the practice’s collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to developing digital design tools and the opportunities made possible when working simultaneously between virtual and physical environments.Building a comprehensive understanding of construction materials and methods, logistical strategies and end-user case studies, ZHA develops dynamic models, tools and simulations which allow for an increased complexity and range of inputs to be incorporated into their design solutions. Historical knowledge and precedent are paired with the ability to analyse the present and define the design tools of the future.Three zones within the exhibition - Innovation, Imagination, Interaction - provide a framework for exploring the work of ZHA’s four research teams: Computation & Design (ZH CODE); Virtual Reality (ZHVR); Analytics & Insights (ZH A+l); and Social Interaction Processes (ZHA Social).
