Zaha Hadid, Born in Iraq in 1950, Hadid studied at the Architectural Association in London using photocopiers and papers in innovative ways, before computers aided her designs. She was the first woman to win the Pritzker and was also the first woman awarded the Royal Gold Medal by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
She had achieved international prominence as one of the world’s foremost architects and designers when she died unexpectedly in March 2016. A thoroughly contemporary thinker and designer, her creative vision was defined by vital, flowing forms and an unmistakably bold presence. She studied mathematics at the American University of Beirut, then moved to London to study architecture in the 1970s, and in 1979 established the practice that bears her name. In her career, she designed sports stadiums, theatres, opera-houses, art galleries, shoes and a car, among other objects. The Zaha Hadid Collection for Georg Jensen was her first collaboration with the Danish design house. “Working with Georg Jensen presented an opportunity to express our ideas in different scales and through different media. Our starting point was the many links to nature at Georg Jensen,”
