Zaha Hadid Pritzker prize winning architect


Iraqi-British architect Dame Zaha Hadid passed away in Miami on 31st March, 2016, of a heart attack, after being admitted to hospital for bronchitis. She was a visionary architect, best known for the Vitra Fire Station, the London Aquatics Centre and Heydar Aliyev Centre.

Her bold and neofuturistic work ushered in a new movement in architecture, where forms are fluid and spaces are dramatic with fragmented geometries, questioning conventions of the architectural practice. She was the first woman architect to receive the Pritzker Prize (often called the Nobel Prize for architecture) in 2004 and the RIBA Gold Medal. She received her education in mathematics, following which she studied at the AA, London. She taught at various universities including Columbia, University of Illinois at Chicago and University of Applied Arts, Vienna.
