Due to one of my female heroes passing away on 31th of March 2016, Dame Zaha Hadid(1950-2016) Photo credit Brigitte Lacombe. Here a building study from the MAXXI: Italian National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome, Flaminio, Italy
My frist architectural book whilst in my first few years in Architecture was “The Completed Buildings and Projects” works by Zaha Hadid and Aaron Betsky. It is still a very inspirational book for architecture, graphics, concepts,… I truly admired her with her boldness and pushing boundaries, producing countless world class buildings, but most importantly for me she was one of the few female leaders in a very male dominated industry.
Here is a link to the Full Statement by Zaha Hadid Architects on her passing away.
