Zaha Hadid – A Legend leaves behind a Legacy

Zaha Hadid, one of the most prolific architects of our times, passed away following a heart attack on March 31st, 2016 at Miami.

It is only befitting then, that she earned the moniker ‘Queen of the Curve’, with many of her fluid forms complemented by the liberal use of glass. An avid glass enthusiast, she was known to work extensively with glass for its fluidity, versatility, functionality and aesthetic appeal. Her work played around glass with its many fascinating facets, as is evident from most of her projects.
