She was one of the best architects of the modern era.

So ironic that she is Iraqi, as she was building the world we were tearing down her country
Marvin Dujardin
Marvin Dujardin:
I had always hoped for an Iraq being entirely rebuilt by Hadid...
It's indeed strange to talk about this brilliant female architect in the past tense, she died way before her time.
They all look like honeycombs or books

I am speechless everytime I see one of her buildings. So timeless and very unique; pushing the boundries...

المهندسة العملاقة زها حديد بمعنى الكلمة شكراً لها لانها مثلت عمالقة العراق (رحمها الله) منو من العراق موجود اهنا ؟ عبر عن شعورك
i live on the same block where her brilliant new residential building in nyc/west chelsea stands. it is thrilling to look at everyday. just stunning. and when walking north on the high line from the meat-packing district, it is a complete knock-out when it comes into view. so futuristic and so beautiful. i am lucky to have such a work of art right here in my neighborhood. she was quite a genius.

I love her design for the MAXXI museum in Rome, with its cantilevered exhibition space. It's the perfect environment for contemporary art.
the Beijing project is Zaha's best work!

The architect always gets recognized and rarely the engineers. Without them, not a single one of these structures could come to fruition.

Hello!, my name is Ariel, I am from Mexico. I am trying to raise funds to be able to return to university since I had to abandon it to help my mother and my brother, I currently work repairing clothes, and I do some work such as rehearsals or crafts but I cannot go back to school, I am trying to develop bags for myself, my idea is to incorporate organic materials that do not pollute the planet, so I can help myself to work and thus be able to go back to school, I want to study architecture, please take the time to read my story and my idea to get ahead, if you can help me by donating or sharing my message to more people I would appreciate it, if you have questions ask me, the least I want is for them to think that I want to scam them when all I am looking for is to achieve my dream of being an architect.
This is my campaign where I explain my situation and my idea I hope you can help me:
I also made a video that is on youtube if you want to see it:
You can also make a direct donation in Paypal which is linked to my fundraising campaign:
With all my heart thank you for taking the time to read my situation, thank you very much, blessings!!.

An amazing and inspirational role model to all women!
why just renderings mostly, instead of more *actual photos??* since these buildings *have* been built.
The PolyU School of Design in Hong Kong is also worth looking at

I’m still appalled at the Cardiff fiasco. We were all robbed and will feel the loss in perpetuity.
What a visionary
Sergio Parola
Sergio Parola:
ZAHA ! the best ever !!
Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum in Lansing, Michigan - an iconic work as well
The problem with her buildings is the same problem with the international style, there is no sense of wabi-sabi at all. The buildings will look their best after construction, but the years will be very tough on these buildings. Good architecture should improve with time.
