  • The Author

    Zaha Hadid

    Born in Baghdad (Iraq), Hadid studied architecture at the Architectural Association in London. Zaha Hadid constantly crosses the limits of traditional architecture and urban design.

    Her work experiments with new spatial concepts that intensify existing urban landscape in the search for an aesthetic vision that includes all fields of design, from large exteriors to interiors and furniture.


    She presents her projects like paintings, with broken, highly-coloured planes. She began her career in the early 1970s collaborating with OMA (Rem Koolhaas’ practice). While in England, she designed a bridge over the River Thames, a museum and some palaces open to the public. The famous La Punta project (social club located at the highest point in Hong Kong) crystallises the qualities of her production trends.


    1979 saw her inaugurate her own architecture studio, and by the following decade she was designing and building all over the world. Her style is clearly defined by thin, projected, pointy volumes set in unified groups around eccentric centres. The architect’s best-known projects include the fire station at Vitra, Germany (beside the museum designed by Frank Gehry); the LFone Pavilion at Weil am Rhein, Germany; the Bergisel ski jump at Innsbruck, Austria; the car park and tram terminus at Hoenheim-Nord, Strasburg, France; the Millennium Dome Mind Zone in Greenwich, London; the extension to the Museo Reina Sofía; the Museum for the Royal collections in Madrid, and the Plaza de las Artes in Barcelona, among others.


    She has also designed hotels and vertical buildings like the Kurfürstendamm 70, Berlin; the IBA Hochhaus, Berlin; the Azabu-Jyuban Building, Tokyo; a hotel in Abu Dhabi; the Spittalmarkt in Berlin, and a hotel in New York’s 42nd Street. Her most recent projects are the Ferry Terminus in the Italian city of Salerno, the High Speed Train Station in Naples, the new EuskoTren headquarters in Durango, Vizcaya, and the Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati (United States), among others.
