Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Zaha Hadid (1950-2016)

We’re greatly saddened by the passing of Zaha Hadid today. She was a true visionary in the world of architecture. Her innovation as both a woman and an architect is not lost on the massive number of people she’s sparked a sense of creativity in and the countless people her legacy will continue to inspire. Today, we mourn the loss of a legendary individual, but also celebrate her fantastic life’s work.

My Modern Met has held Hadid in high regards, much like the rest of the world. As such, we’ve found ourselves in awe of the stunning designs she’s had a hand in developing. Join us in taking a look back at some of our favorite work by the one and only Zaha Hadid.
