#throwbackthursday #tbt : #phaeno Science Centre, #wolfsburg #germany . “Revolutionary is a word to be used as sparingly as possible; especially when it is applied to architecture. But Zaha Hadid Architects’ new science centre in Wolfsburg, an astonishing, exhilarating concrete and steel vortex of a building, is one of those very few constructions that fully justifies its use. She allows us to experience space in ways that never seemed possible before. The building does indeed turn architecture upside down, suggesting a new understanding of space that had previously only existed in the architect’s mind.” The Observer, 2005. Photo #ranierjensen
