Zaha Hadid - Architectural Superstar. Colin Davies Wednesday 19 September 2018

Architect Dame Zaha Hadid died suddenly in March 2016, aged 65. She was born in Iraq but made Britain her home early in her career and received the UK’s most prestigious architecture award in both 2010 and 2011. Her reputation was global - this lecture maps her career from the visionary projects of the 1980s, through the years when her designs were considered unbuildable to the prolific crop of successful international projects built in the last decade of her life.
