On March 31st we lost Zaha Hadid, the most celebrated architect in the world. Not just for conquering recognition that was almost inexistent for women in her field, but for the series of emblematic projects she created throughout her career.
Zaha Hadid was the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize, the greatest prestige in architecture.

She received a Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Riba Stirling Prize twice, was named an Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and was inducted as a member of the American Institute of Architecture. 

The Iranian architect developed a stunning series of projects throughout her professional trajectory. 

The first museum of contemporary art in Rome was another of her projects. In the heart of the city, Maxxi breaks the architectonic style of the Italian city with her futuristic design.

The Guangzhou Opera House, in China. Constructed on the banks of the Pearl river, it alludes to the local geology.

Zaha also created the Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion, where the traveling exposition was housed in Paris.

The 2012 London Olympic Aquatic Park, opened to the public after the games. Highlight for the roof which reminds us of a wave. 

On the Austrian mountain of Bergisel, nearly 750 meters above sea level, she put up the Bergisel Ski Jump. It’s a structure that combines a ski jump ramp and a café with a panoramic terrace.

The most importante work since the Cold War, according to the New York Times, was by Zaha Hadid - in addition to having been the first museum in the U.S. designed by a women.
The back wall of the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art follows the lines of the sidewalk, forming an urban carpet, in Ohio. 

In Spain, the Zaragoza Bridge Pavilion wasn’t designed to be just another bridge. It served as an interactive exposition that raised primordial questions about local water resources - creating a relationship with the Ebro River, spanned by the bridge.

In addition to architecture, Zaha also marked Melissas world.  In 2010, she joined with us for the Melissa + Zaha Hadid collab.
With her typical challenging and organic design, she made more than mere shoes. True icons that changed the world.
