Zaha Hadid MAXXI Preview
This weekend was a big one for architecture lovers, as Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI (National Museums for 21st Century Arts) was opening for a preview. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it during the short morning windows when the space was open, but decided to go over last night to see what I could get of the exterior. As there was a special dance performance by Sarah Waltz about to take place, so I couldn’t go in any further without having bought a ticket. The museum is empty of art until the spring, but this was a chance for people to appreciate the newest piece of modern architecture in the city and solidifies the Flaminia area as the place to go for one-stop modern architecture shopping. Nearby you have Renzo Piano’s Auditorium and then also the Stadio Olimpico, built in the 1960s, to complete the trio.
