Architect Dame Zaha Hadid dies after heart attack
http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35936768

Quote:
Architect Dame Zaha Hadid, whose designs include the London Olympic Aquatic Centre, has died aged 65.

Iraqi-born, this year she was the first woman to receive the Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba) Gold Medal in recognition of her work.

She died following a heart attack on Thursday in a Miami hospital, where she was being treated for bronchitis.


An incredibly talented woman, she will be missed.
RIP Zaha

Sad times.

To be honest though I was never impressed with her designs, they looked to me liked what I would have drawn back in high school in the back of my notebook. A lot of them are impractical to use aswell, the Olympic swimming pool was panned by critics because of the design, if you sat at the top you couldn't see the 10m diving board because of the curvature of the roof.

I don't know who this is. Even if I did, I don't expect I'd care.

So someone he's never met, nor heard of has died and it doesn't really impact him.

Not sure why what he said was so bad. Not like he's happy about it.

Why post anything at all?

It's disrespectful.

real estate/architecture is one of my favorite hobbies. obviously ive never met her, but this is a huge loss for that world which i absolutely love.

so i don't understand the need to say anything at all either. it doesn't affect you.

Some of her designs didn't resonate with me either, but there were others I liked/loved a lot. For example the Bridge Pavilion in Spain, Guangzhou Opera House in China & the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre in Azerbaijan.

There was a lot to admire about her bold, daring & uniquely ambitious designs, she certainly liked to push the envelope. I found with a lot of her work you either loved it or hated it, no in between. Similar to how you may react to much of Frank Gehry's work.

100% agree, I absolutely love architecture too... This is a huge loss, she was a giant of the field. Not only was she daring with her designs, she was also incredibly prolific. Any time a major project came up, Zaha's name was never far away, her firm was constantly submitting proposals/concepts & often winning the contract.

She has also done a ton of other work ranging from: Interior designs / furnishings & lighting etc, fashion & accessories, architecture/art exhibitions, collaborations (she teamed up with Karl Lagerfeld for one of them) & a whole host of conceptual work including designs for super yachts (I wasn't a fan of those tbh). I believe she has also spent time lecturing & passing on her knowledge throughout the years.

Not posting would probably have been better, but I don't really find what he said to be small minded.

That's fair. I don't know why I said anything. I was thinking it and then posted it. Probably was looking to stir up trouble.

Even that tall building in the background looks awesome.

While I agree with what he said, I had the decency to say it in my head Laughing
