Taking pictures in the exhibition halls is not allowed at the museum unless you are given a special permission - so any visitor's image of the MAXXI is likely to be from the main lobby and connecting spaces only - or quick shots taken before the ushers were reprimending you.

What an uninspirative, disappointing building.


Never really liked Zaha Hadid, but she seems to get worse by every year and totally runs out of ideas.

Hadid's Maxxi wins Stirling Prize

Zaha Hadid beats off five other nominations to scoop £20k prize

Zaha Hadid’s Maxxi Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome has scooped this year’s £20,000 Stirling Prize.

Hadid beat off competition from five other nominations including two other museums - the Neues Museum in Berlin by David Chipperfield Architects and Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum by Rick Mather.

The award, which is in its 15th year, was presented at a ceremony in the Roundhouse, north London. Maxxi was an early favourite to win the prize, the judges said: “This is a mature piece of architecture, the distillation of years of experimentation, only a fraction of which ever got built.

“It is the quintessence of Zaha’s constant attempt to create a landscape as a series of cavernous spaces drawn with a free, roving line. The resulting piece, rather than prescribing routes, gives the visitor a sense of exploration. It is perhaps her best work to date”.

The Maxxi is the first Italian public museum devoted to contemporary art and architecture. The striking design comprises of a series of jutting concrete and glass boxes while inside it is daylit by a plethora of skylights.

The Ashmolean Museum won the public vote, gaining 43.3% of the votes, while the Neues Museum came in a second with 24.1%. Hadid’s Maxxi museum was third.

As well as de Rijke Marsh Morgan’s Clapham Manor primary school in south west London the two others on the shortlist were Batemans Row, a live/work development in east London by Theis and Khan Architects and Christ’s College School in Guildford
by DSDHA.

MAXXI Museum wins World Building of the Year at 2010 World Architecture Festival

A project for a centre for contemporary arts in Rome is now officially the best new building in the world. MAXXI, National Museum of XXI Century Arts, Italy, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, UK, has won global architecture’s most coveted accolade of ‘World Building of the Year’ at the prestigious World Architecture Festival Awards (WAF) 2010.
The presentation of the WAF Awards took place during a special ceremony, which marked the conclusion of the biggest global celebration of architecture – the World Architecture Festival, held at the Centre Convencions International Barcelona (CCIB) this week.
The winning design was selected from a shortlist of 15 projects from around the world by the WAF ‘Super Jury’. The ‘Super Jury’ consisted of Arata Isozaki, Barry Bergdoll, who is the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Enrique Norten, founder of TEN Arquitectos, and Hanif Kara of engineer Adams Kara Taylor.
Speaking at WAF 2010 Paul Finch, WAF Programme Director, said: “The clarity required for architects to present their work in ten minutes often underlines the clarity of thought itself. There were a number of buildings that the judges admired, but the winning building had a certain inevitability to win the overall award. This is a building which is a volume, which takes its place in a very happy way, inside the volume of a city – an unwound Guggenheim, with ribbons of connectivity. It is a building which will still be talked about in the history of architecture in 50 years time.”
Collecting the World Building of the Year Award, Gianluca Racana, project director at Zaha Hadid Architects for MAXXI, said: “It is very nice to feel that after so many years of hard work it has been recognised. I was surprised that the jury was not critical at all – it was a very good sign.” He talked about the sense of achievement in getting the building constructed amidst the bureaucracy and funding difficulties in Italy and he described designing a museum for contemporary art as a dream project. “It is open ended”, he said. “The building is an incubator for a new art form. It is very seductive.” But he warned that there may be no more such commissions in Europe, with funding shortages. “It will be the last of a line starting with the Guggenheim” he said.
This is the 3rd year the World Architecture Festival Awards have been presented. Previous winners include ‘World Building of the Year 2008’ – Luigi Bocconi University, Milan, designed by Irish practice Grafton Architects and ‘World Building of the Year 2009’ – Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre in South Africa, designed by Peter Rich Architects of Johannesburg.
