In conversation with ZAHA HADID
Global architecture star Zaha Hadid has received every important architecture award there is. She was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Prize in 2004 and went on to receive the Stirling Prize twice, in 2010 and 2011. Her name regularly appears on media lists - the most influential figures, the most powerful women, important thinkers, as well as best-dressed. She was honoured with an Order of Chivalry of the British Empire for herservices to architecture in 2002 and elevated to Dame in 2013. Here she speaks with Hilary French, architectural critic, author, and former Head of Architecture & Design at the Royal College of Art, about her upbringing, life in London, and why the future is all about curves.
