Zaha Hadid has left an incredible mark on architectural discourse, leaving us with so much to admire, contemplate, and emulate. Zaha Hadid was born in Baghdad in 1950, schooled in England and Beirut and studied architecture at London’s Architectural Association. Her charisma and character brought her work to another level, bringing simple building to the pedestal of architecture, with her as its Queen. We look back at her notable works and feel confident that Mark A-to-Z is now, at last, complete. Thank you for following Mark A-to-Z!
