The IMAGES community has been saddened by news of the passing of Zaha Hadid. Like so many people around the world, Zaha’s vision for architecture was a constant source of fascination. Just as her architecture inspired us towards seeking design perfection, her life story was also a source of great inspiration.
Zaha was highly awarded and lauded by her peers. In 2004, she was the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize and was most recently recognised as the recipient of the 2016 RIBA Gold Medal, the first woman to win this award in in her own right.
