Zaha’s Endeavors


Never one to shy away from new endeavors, architect Zaha Hadid recently created a very architectural shoe for United Nude, housing the foot in a vertical building of sorts with shifting planes. The shoes are made of metallic chromed vinyl rubber, with a fiberglass platform and nappa leather lining. Hadid also just opened a gallery in London, displaying her furniture, jewelry, lighting, and paintings. Architectural models are on view on the second floor of the space, by appointment only.
