First women to win the Pritzer Prize, Zaha Hadid his recognized worldwide by her distinctive and innovative architecture. Born in Iraq, the London based architectural designer creates powerful buildings easily recognizable by their fluid forms.

She moved to London to study at the Architectural Association School of Architecture where she met Rem Koolhaas one of her teachers with who she started working at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture and where she later became a partner.

In 1980 she opened her own studio and lowered the voices that claimed that her architecture was impossible to build.

In 2011 she was choosen to design the London Aquatics Centre for the London 2012 Olympics.
