Cover Design:
The design on the cover
seeks inspiration from the
drawings of Zaha Hadid,
featured in this issue in ‘The
Legacy of Zaha Hadid’
(page 82). From the
explosive fragmentation of
sharp, pointed forms to the
organic and enveloping
curves of her later works,
an unpredictable path is
spawned by the gestural
expressiveness of drawing.
