“Zaha Hadid – The Architect”
By Anthea Streeter

Before her untimely death, Dame Zaha Hadid was one of the most distinguished architects in the world. She was also a talented designer. Her work is exciting because she developed a new form of architecture, setting it free by rejecting 90 degree angles. Her early abstract paintings are interesting, in which she revealed her visionary world – no definition, lines converge and gravity disappears – all conceived before advanced computer software. From her early sharp-angled buildings she developed a fluid architecture where floors, ceilings and walls – and even furniture – form part of the overall design. Thus many of her later structures are extruded to the most extreme organic shapes, in what she called a “seamless fluidity”.
