De wereld van de architectuur zal nooit meer hetzelfde zijn zonder Zaha Hadid, een van de belangrijkste moderne pioniers. Vanochtend stierf de 65-jarige Britse architect in het ziekenhuis aan een hartaanval. Hadid wordt ook wel de “koningin van de rondingen” genoemd door de industriële gebouwen die zij er organisch uit laat zien. Haar vloeiende lijnen zie je terug in het Aquatics Centre in Londen, het MAXXI in Rome, het ontwerp voor het grootse vliegveld ooit in Peking en zelfs in een paar sneakers van Adidas die ze samen met Pharrell Williams ontwierp. Het werk van de architect is beloond met een Pritzker Prize en een gouden medaille van het Royal Institute of British Architecture. Hadid is de enige vrouwelijke architect die ooit beide prijzen heeft gewonnen. Nu het nieuws zich over de wereld verspreidt, drukken architecten en artiesten hun verdriet en condoleances uit.

I once saw #ZahaHadid tell an audience of architects who asked 'what do you do if the engineer says it can't be done' - "Sack the engineer"

Zaha Hadid was a true visionary. We have lost an amazing woman and a pioneer of the architecture of the future. I had the great pleasure to know her and to have a major solo exhibition of my work at her first major Museum Project in Cincinnati.
