About Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid was a prolific and visionary architect and designer, as well as the only female recipient of the Pritzker Prize for Architecture since its 1979 inception. Hadid’s structures are famous for their use of fragmented geometry and multiple entry points such that the building looks different from different perspectives. She once explained: “It’s all about promenading, being able to pause, to look out, look above, look sideways.” Hadid, who had a background in mathematics, studied at the Architectural Association in London, which is famous for its rejection of post-modern styles of architecture in favor of classic modernism. There, she worked under Elia Zenghelis and Rem Koolhaas, the latter of whom would become her first employer.
