All at Gallopper are deeply saddened to hear about the passing away of renowned architect Zaha Hadid.
The Premier Architect passed away at 65. Hadid was being treated for bronchitis at a hospital in Miami and died of a heart attack in the early hours of Thursday morning, the 31st March 2016.
Zaha Hadid is the first sole woman to be awarded the UK’s highest honour for Architects. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) have conferred the 2016 Royal Gold Medal to Zaha Hadid, given in recognition of a lifetime’s work. It is awarded to those who have had a significant influence either directly or indirectly on the advancement of architecture. In 2004, Hadid became the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize.
Zaha Hadid, known as the Queen of modern and deconstructed architecture, expired at a hospital in Miami. Her sustainable yet stylish and futuristic designs were once called fantastical and impossible to construct. Her designs, inspired from nature and the various intricacies of it : the fluidity of her structures, where the floor melts into the wall and the wall into the ceiling has given viewers the joy of seeing something new from every angle. These designs very much like nature aren’t predictable.
