these images were taken on assignment for zaha hadid, during the opening day events at Pierre Vives. At one point during the evening Zaha sat down for a tv interview, and a crowd of people saw her and came over to get photos and autographs. I think she was really surprised and touched by the public response. She chatted and enjoyed listening to them, a side of Zaha rarely seen, and a privilege to capture.
The Pierres Vives centre is a purpose-built government building in montpellier, france. designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the glass and concrete building houses the multimedia library, public archive and sports department of the Herault regional government.
