Zaha Hadid (1950-2016)

Zaha Hadid died today of a heart attack in Miami, where she owned an apartment and would spend periods. Architecture and art mourn her loss.

When the Iraqi-British architect received the Pritzker Prize in 2004, the first woman ever to be given the distinction, Luis Fernández-Galiano wrote the article we now reproduce. Her last exhibition in Madrid took place in 2012 at Ivorypress, where she showed her output in all its breadth, from the extraordinary suprematist drawings to her most recent designs, objects, and sculptures. An incessantly experimental artist, Hadid’s creativity ranged from buildings to furniture, shoes, and jewelry, and her career had just been honored with the 2016 RIBA Gold Medal, as noted in the March issue of .Arquitectura Viva. The magazine’s editorial staff shares in the grief of her colleagues and her studio, which has circulated the text that we hasten, by way of a tribute, to print here. that we hasten, by way of a tribute, to print here.
