Zaha Hadid was an Iraqi-British Architect, who was the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Her style was intensely futuristic architecture characterized by curving facades, sharp angles, and using materials such as concrete and steel. She took the strongest materials in the world and manipulated them to form objects that appear soft and sturdy at the same time. Her buildings are eye catching and have a unique shape, style and quality to them that makes the structure iconic.
