ZAHA HADID - 1950 - 2016

Zaha Hadid was an internationally recognised Iraqi-British Architect, responsible for a variety of outstanding buildings and other structures, often based on unusual geometrical shapes. She received a number of prestigious awards for her innovative architectural designs, including on two occasions, the Stirling Prize. She was the first female architect to receive the Royal Gold Medal (awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects).

 

ZAHA HADID - EARLY CAREER

She came to London to study architecture in 1972, at the highly respected Architectural Association School of Architecture. After graduating, she worked in the Netherlands, although she started to build her reputation teaching Architecture in England, the USA and Germany, promoting an innovative and imaginative approach to the design of buildings. Many of her early designs were not built, undoubtedly due to the lack of foresight and ambition of potential clients, who selected more conservative and less imaginative architects.

She established her own company - Zaha Hadid Architects, in 1979.
