Without diving into a look at all her work I just wanted to take a peek at her design for the Abu Dhabi Performing Arts Centre. This is another signature piece which is still the trend for this type of building (going back a long long way). This truly contemporary design packs a great deal of techno-punch while folding in all the environmental messages that make up 'today' Architectural vanguard. She is quoted as describing the design as:
... a sculptural form that emerges from a linear intersection of pedestrian paths within the cultural district, gradually developing into a growing organism that sprouts a network of successive branches.I think these sparkling CG images reveal the styling for us, assuming they can get the halls functioning well in terms of lighting, acoustics and such then this should be a stunning building.
