…I received an email sharing that one of the world’s most talented and successful architects passed away. Zaha M. Hadid may not be a familiar name to you. Until three years ago I had not heard of her either.
Thanks to Gillian, one of the Advanced Design workshop participants from 2014 I was soon better informed and became a strong supporter and great admirer of Zaha Hadid’s designs.
Hadid’s work was a great inspiration to Gillian and the rest of the class became entranced with the way Gillian embraced all Zaha Hadid had to offer. Just recently I heard her say “Oh, I think I will use one of my Zaha sketchbook designs for the upcoming challenge.”
To read more about Dame Zaha M. Hadid’s accomplishments check Google, Wikipedia or start on her website. I am grateful for Gillian’s great passion for Hadid’s architectural accomplishments. Had it not been for her sharing books and her design research I would not have learned about this great architect.
