Wallpaper* Celebrates The Life and Legacy Of Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid blessed the world of architecture with her far-flung futuristic and boundary-breaking designs. After having graduated London’s Architectural Association, Hadid went on to open her own practice, Zaha Hadid Architects, which is still in fruition today with ongoing projects in all corners of the globe. Hadid led a lengthy career, that wasn’t short of highs and lows, including doubts and controversies arising from some of her early designs, until her unfortunate passing in March of 2016. As a guest-editor of Wallpaper* Magazine in 2008, Hadid created an original multi-page cut out artwork which ran through the pages, creating a wholly unique experience. A statement which her work has been praised for, a unique experience, particularly the design of Vladislav Doronin’s $150m home which resembles a space rocket. A personal favourite for me would be London’s Aquatics Centre, purpose built for the 2012 Olympic Games, which is nearly 16,000sq’m of concrete beauty.

‘Zaha.. For many burgeoning aesthetes, those two syllables were their gateway into a new world of design, unlocking a visual landscape that was both far-flung futuristic and a warmly wish-fulfilling evocation of yesterday’s world of tomorrow.’
