Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid was an Iraqi-British architect who left an incredible legacy to the community, that lives on through Zaha Hadid Architects. The architectural buildings of the designer are distinctively neo-futuristic, characterised by the “powerful, curving forms of her elongated structures” with “multiple perspective points and fragmented geometry to evoke the chaos of modern life”.
In this article, we’ll cover both the architectural buildings signed by Zaha Hadid herself and the ones built later on, after her passing, by her architectural firm.
In 2010, Zaha Hadid was commissioned by the Iraqi government to design the new building for the Central Bank of Iraq. Other works include the Pierres Vives, the new departmental records building for French department Hérault, in Montpellier and the Heydar Aliyev Center, in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Zaha Hadid’s project was named as the best for the Vilnius Guggenheim Hermitage Museum in 2008. She designed the Innovation Tower for Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion that was displayed in Hong Kong in 2008.
Nowadays, Zaha Hadid Architects complete on a regular basis architectural buildings that are still embedded with the modern architect‘s view of contemporary design. Hard to choose only a few standouts, we decided to go with the most recent designs: the Leeza Soho skyscraper and the terminal building at Beijing Daxing International Airport.
Zaha Hadid was truly a creative genius that has granted the world with astonishingly curated buildings and products. The revolutionary creator will always be remembered for her distinctively neo-futuristic buildings, powerfully curvy and elongated creations. In each architectural project, the architect was able to create a new expressive identity. The legacy of Zaha Hadid will always live on!
