On May 31, 2004, Iraqi-born British architect Zaha Hadid won the Pritzker Prize, one of the highest honors in architecture. Hadid was also the first woman to receive the Royal Institute of British Architects Gold Medal in 2016.
Hadid studied at the Architectural Association in London, and is best known for her futuristic take on architecture.
Among some of her signature buildings: The MAXXI in Rome, the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London, and the London Aquatics Center.
Five of architect Zaha Hadid’s most ground-breaking buildings.
Hadid died last year at the age of 65 after suffering a heart attack while being treated for bronchitis. At the time of her death, Hadid had been working on a high-rise condominium, One Thousand Museum, in Miami.
