Architecture Timelapse: Modeling Zaha Hadid's Grand Rabat Theatre with Blender

This is a time lapse video of modeling Zaha Hadid’s (ZHA) Grand Rabat Theatre with Blender. ZHA are well known for their use of Maya for conceptual architectural design. Subdivision poly modeling is not widely used in the architectural field (outside of a a dozen+ practices), yet the workflow offers fantastic opportunities, offering an organic and expressive path for unleashing initial ideas, compared to Nurbs modeling.

I have been inspired to demonstrate Blender’s robust modeling capabilities, which can significantly aide the initial creative process, in a similar manner as Maya.
