Patrik Schumacher

In this episode of PA Talks, Patrik Schumacher, an architect and architectural theorist based in London had a candid conversation with Hamid Hassanzadeh, founder of ParametricArchitecture sharing the challenges and ongoing projects. Patrik Schumacher, is the principal architect of Zaha Hadid Architects. A world-renowned architect; known for working with Dame Zaha Hadid since joining Zaha Hadid Architects practice in 1988. We were delighted to this informal yet informative live session on Instagram. When parametric or computational design is the topic, Zaha Hadid comes to the mind immediately. Known for her breath-taking parametrical designs; Zaha eradicated the norm in architecture.

After the sudden passing of Zaha Hadid in 2016, Patrik Schumacher took the lead of the practice. He has shared the challenges he has faced after Zaha Hadid’s passing as a sole remaining partner and leading the practice, his early life as a student, his source of inspiration for ongoing projects, resolving issues in their designs, and how his interest emerged for parametricism and tectonism.

Furthermore, he has discussed the main principles for creating parametric design and what could be the firm’s next step after producing works in the fields of fashion, furniture, and jewelry. Last but not least; Schumacher has given insights on artificial intelligence and the future of AI combined with architecture.
