Today we want to celebrate the success of one of the greatest woman in the international architecture scene.
Zara has already won several international competition: in 2004 she was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Prize and now she is again protagonist on the architecture scene by winning the Royal Gold Medal Prize for 2016, a prestigious award for architecture, since 1948, conferred by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
This award is conferred as a recognition for concrete and substantial contribution to the international architecture, and Zara is (once again) the first woman to achieve this recognition.
Zara Hadid is a brittannic architect and designer born oi Baghdad in 1950, from a prosperous family and grown up in a typical Bauhaus building of the time: a period in which, in the Middle East, the term “modernism” was definitely a synonymous of glamour and progressive thinking.
The typical architecture and design of Zara Hadid is characterized by curved and powerful shape and elongated structures with multiple prospective and a fragmented geometry.
