The world loses another artist

Zaha Hadid dropped by her own exhibition when I went with my architect sister Tania to see it one London morning in 2002 or 2003. Hadid¬†was a rock star in the architect world even back then. My sister was pretty excited to be in the same building with one of her heroes. She¬†obviously also had great presenting skills to convince people to make unusual and expensive buildings! Personally I was disappointed that her work that she called “paintings” in the show was made by her team rather her own hand but seems to be normal for successful artists at a certain point in their careers. Her vision of flowing lines and circular shapes truly shook up architecture.
