Zaha Hadid, called Architect of the Future died unexpectedly a week ago. I was & still am in shock...a "bigger than life" visionary, what a talent...and my age!
I related to Zaha on so many levels: she was a woman architect - how many world famous women architects are there? - a middle eastern, a prolific "outside the box" designer who was also celebrated for her furniture, shoes, car, boat and jewelry designs. She defied convention. Dezeen magazine has a lovely opinion piece and a wonderful collection of articles. Lots of time could be spent at the a Pinterest page dedicated to her.
Someone once said my RIDGE sofa reminded them of a Zaha Hadid design...a true compliment!! A personal inspiration to me...she will be missed.
