In Memoriam: Zaha Hadid

APR 1, 2016 | By ELLE DECOR Team
Inarguably one of the greatest architects of our times, Dame Zaha Hadid passed away in the early hours of March 31. An irreplaceable loss to the fraternity…
The great dame of architecture, Zaha was beyond comparison. Her valuable contribution to the field of architecture cannot be overstated. With her experimental nature and future forward outlook, the visionary single-handedly morphed the state of design, from structure and furniture to footwear and cars, into the realms of the unbelievable. The Baghdad born creative became the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004 and RIBA’s Royal Gold Medal in 2016. The concrete mark she left on the world – is a more than a legacy, it is a gift we will cherish always.
Her spirit will live on in her work…
