Thank you Zaha Hadid

I don’t think that architecture is only about shelter, is only about a very simple enclosure. It should be able to excite you, to calm you, to make you think.” -Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid passed away unexpectedly today at the age of 65.  A profoundly influential architect and designer, Hadid brought a formidable sensuality and exquisite sculptural vison to everything she touched.

While her audacious ambition and uncompromising ways are an inspiring tale unto themselves, today I want to honor her by letting the work speak for itself.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
