Secret Garden

british architect zaha hadid has collaborated with italian marble company citco to present 'the secret garden' during milan design week 2012.
the pavilion brings together three vertical surfaces. the walls are constructed out of a jigsaw of irregularly-shaped,
multi-faceted marble chips which adopt a repeated pattern to acquire a three-dimensional form. the rhythm of cracks,
folds and recesses define areas of individuality. the deconstructed architecture generates a dialogue of geometries with nature that
evolves the creative language and exploits the digital design process and production techniques of marble.
