Looking Back at the Architectural Legacy of Zaha Hadid, Dead at 65

Zaha Hadid, the first woman to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize, died on Thursday in Miami at the age of 65. The Iraqi-born, London-based architect designed technically challenging, visually arresting buildings around the globe. Hadid was best known for her public and institutional projects.

Very impressive designing by this late Iraqi London based architect...

David Trefler She seems like a trailblazer-- see this NYT article about the problems that female architects still face in the male-dominated field: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/13/arts/design/female-architects-speak-out-on-sexism-unequal-pay-and-more.html (Also http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/01/opinion/zaha-hadid-more-than-a-female-architect.html?_r=0)

Vienna Stokes I'm studying architecture and I can confirm that it is very much still a man's world. I find it interesting that females in the article you quoted mention that it's not going to change till construction becomes a more equal sphere. I wonder if that is necessary (or realistic) but I definitely see the problem with men being used to coordinating only with other men in the workplace setting.
