A Photo Tribute to Zaha Hadid, an Architect Who Changed the Industry

Posted by under Design Trends

“I don’t think that architecture is only about shelter, is only about a very simple enclosure. It should be able to excite you, to calm you, to make you think.” – Zaha Hadid

Last week, an iconic architect and designer Zaha Hadid passed away. She was not only one of the world’s best, but was a leading female in a predominantly male field. She was the first woman and the first Muslim to win the prestigious Pritzker Prize, awarded to an exceptional architect.

Hadid orchestrated the design of some of the most unique, innovative buildings—from the London Aquatics Centre to the MAXXI Museum in Rome. Her signature curved style and her strong point of view surely prompted young girls to leap into architecture, and her passing only brings more light to her masterful body of work.

Rather than say what she did, here is a series of photos showcasing a few of her most iconic structures.
