The sudden passing of Iraqi-born London-based architect Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) sent shock waves through the global architecture community and beyond. Her work, mesmerizing and awe-inspiring, expanded exponentially the formal vocabulary of the contemporary built-environment. A larger-than-life personality, Hadid was a fixture of the media world, where the word "diva" routinely accompanied press coverage of her designs. This course traces her trajectory from her early days at the Architectural Association in London filled with projects latching to the Russian Constructivist avant-garde to the latest realizations all over the planet based on parametric design.
