Zaha Hadid installs temporary installation piece in Dover Street Market, London

Dover Street Market has commissioned Zaha Hadid to design a site-specific installation which is currently being showcased in their London store. The piece is entitled 'Aqua', with the concept referencing directly back to the formal language of Hadid's renowned London Aquatics Centre. The display will remain on site for the duration of the 2012 Olympic and the Paralympic Games.

The piece is displayed in the window, made up of several elements which flow to create one visual image which mimics the movement of a wave. Zaha Hadid commented: "Designing for Dover Street Market is an exciting opportunity to install a piece inspired by the fluid geometries of the London Aquatics Centre: a wave of liquid, frozen in time, right in the heart of London."
