Zaha Hadid was a world recognized Iraqi-Britisharchitect.
She became the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize (2004). She also received the Stirling Prize in 2010 and 2011.
In 2012, she was honored a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire and in 2015, she became the first woman to be awarded the RIBA Gold Medal in her own right.
In 2016, Zaha Hadid was the recipient of the Royal Gold Medal for architecture, marking the first time a woman has won the prize in her own right.
Sadly, on 31 March 2016, Hadid died of a heart attack in a Miami hospital, where she was being treated for bronchitis.
Ms. Hadid was known for ambitious projects and startling forms.
Her buildings are distinctively neo-futuristic, characterised by the “powerful, curving forms of her elongated structures” with “multiple perspective points and fragmented geometry to evoke the chaos of modern life”.
Her audacity and creativity took her to the top level of architects in the world of design, scoring projects around the world.
Take a look: Guangzhou Opera House, China, 2002 Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre, Azerbaijan, 2012 Vitra Fire Station, Germany, 1994 MAXXI National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, Italy, 2010 London Aquatics Center, 2011
At her death, she and her firm, with hundreds of employees, had dozens of projects in progress, including an Iraqi Parliament building in Baghdad, where she was born, and her first residential building in New York.
“The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children is greater money or other material things accumulated in one’s life, but rather a legacy of character and boldness.”
