    Tony Cortizas, VP of Global Brand Strategy at Melia Hotels International introduces Crest, an LDF 2014 installation designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. Transcript: We commissioned this fantastic piece that is behind me, it’s a collaboration with Zaha Hadid Architects and the story of the piece, there’s many stories to the piece, but one part of the story for us is that we are doing a project in Dubai which opens at the beginning of 2016, and Zaha Hadid is the architect for the exterior and interiors of the building, including our hotel. And this piece that has been designed for LDF is actually going to be deconstructed and taken to Dubai and then eventually incorporated into the hotel itself upon completion.

      Thin, moulded and high value - the new building of the University for Economics and Business Administration in Vienna, which has been designed by Zaha Hadid, is dominated by fibreC elements. Beyond the differently coloured concrete look, the glassfibre concrete elements were able to meet all the requirements of the star architect, including aesthetics, material quality and the challenge of implementing the design of a slightly curved building cubature with curved fibreC Panels.

            These are troubled times for higher education. In recent years the idea of pursuing knowledge for its own sake has found little support. Instead of creating an atmosphere supportive of open enquiry and free thinking, universities have succumbed to a narrower, more pragmatic view of education focused on churning out employable graduates and offering ‘value for money’. This is one of the debates in mantownhuman's Critical Subjects Summer School which was a week-long opportunity for some of the keenest young design students - from UK and across the world - to engage in a series of intellectual, architectural and urban design challenges facilitated by leading names in the field. This debate sponsored and held in the offices of Zaha Hadid Architects in London. Originated by Future Cities Project and filmed by FCP Ltd and Oktoberworks mantownhuman.org

              Does the call for us to respect the environment, to use ‘benign processes’ and 'natural materials' restrict our ambitions... or liberate us? After all, are we part of nature, or are we separate from it?

                Steve Parnell writing in the Architects' Journal complains that Schumacher doesn't 'define' parametricism. Meanshile, in Building Design Hanif Kara is reported to have polemicised against the 'faux-science of “parametricism” and the evils of techno-jargon'. Peter Buchanan, interviewed in the AJ, calls parametricism 'mere "exaggeration" with "nothing to do with the future" and suggests that the way forward is sustainable "Transmodern architecture" while US architect, Bill Caplan suggests that "parametricism is gratuitous form usually faking function".So, is Parametricism simply a software package masquerading as a philosophy, or a non-ideological reflection of our times? Is it shape-making or ground-breaking?
