    APRIL 01, 2016

    The untimely death of Zaha Hadid on March 31, 2016, came as a shock to the design world and beyond. At just 65, the Iraqi-born architect was inarguably at the height of a career that seemed to know no bounds. In all of her projects, Hadid—who in 2004 became the first woman to win the illustrious architect’s award, the Pritzker Architecture Prize—invented something entirely new, pushing technology, design, and, at times, it seemed, even gravity, to unprecedented extremes. Here, we honor the great architect with a look at 10 of her most compelling designs through time.
