Ten years in the making, Iraqi-born architectural phenomenon, Zaha Hadid’s Museum of Art for the XXI Century, or MAXXI, is finally completed. Located in Rome, the museum’s contemporary design is a pleasant and eye-catching addition to the city’s mostly historic feel. Housing contemporary art and architecture, the 26,000 square metre building includes moveable hanging partitions that allow gallery-goers to move freely across the space, as well as stand and stare.
