Zaha Hadid, greatly missed

It is with great sadness that we at Inchbald heard of the death of Zaha Hadid.

Zaha-Hadid-43030.XL

Many years ago Zaha came to do a course at Inchbald to see if her ‘desire to design’ had foundation in both practicality and possibility.   She was a great success and her tutor, architect Stephen Garrett, now based in California where he was responsible for the design and building of The Getty Museum, encouraged her to pursue her dream.

After qualifying as an architect, Zaha became one of the most renowned practitioners in the world and her amazing capacity for innovation combined with implementation has provided some of the 21st century’s most spectacular buildings.

She was unquestionably a design genius and her early loss has deprived us all of one of Life’s greatest contributors.

Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair in Battersea Park

Jacqueline Duncan spent this morning at the Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair in Battersea Park and was interested to see that decoration appears to have overtaken the public interest in antiques.   There were several high quality pieces from the early 20th century, notably a small and charming cocktail cabinet, and an outstanding credenza by Robert Heritage circa 1960, both of which I could have taken home with pleasure.

Several stylish French firms were showing and if I was to comment on the overall fashion, I would say that it was dominated by the best of French Provincial taste.

Odyssey were showing their engravings and very original framing skills, and Sandy Stanley, expert on Grima, had an impressive collection of 20th century Jewellery including both Grima and John Donald.

These occasions are hard work but worth the effort – I always learn something.

David Harber’s Focus Lunch held on 15th January 2016
