Elevation of a modern neighborhood

Architecture has lost an incredible force and talent

Like most, A+W•NZ were saddened and shocked with the news of Dame Zaha Hadid's passing on 31st March 2016. Awakening to newspaper headlines on 1st April, first reactions included the hope that somehow this was a terrible April Fool's trick, but sadly not so. At 65 years, Zaha Hadid has been lost to the world of architecture at possibly the height of her career and the most productive time in terms of built work. The architecture produced by the offices of Zaha Hadid has the ability to surprise, delight, amaze and even anger, all important and difficult architectural feats. She leaves behind a huge and important body of work, and it is hoped that the office has learned from such a great 'master', and that her legacy continues through the work they produce.

'In 1982, Zaha Hadid changed our world.' Aaron Betsky, Obituary, Architect (AIA Journal)

Many, many tributes have flowed since the news spread quickly around the world, and we add ours to the very large list. Zaha Hadid is the first sole woman and the first Muslim to be awarded the Pritzker Prize (2004) and the RIBA Gold Medal (2016), and was named a Dame in 2012  -  architecture has lost an incredible force and talent. Her drawings and her built works are extraordinary and have influenced so many globally.

'We mourn all that Zaha had yet to bring.' AJ, 1 April 2016.
