ZAHA HADID - Architectural Superstar. COLIN DAVIES Monday 11 March 2019

Dame Zaha Hadid died on March 31st 2016 at the age of 65. One of the most important architects of the early 21st Century. She was born in Iraq and her reputation was global but she made her home in Britain. We will hear the story of her career from the visionary projects of the 1980s, through the years of frustration when her designs were considered unbuildable, to the prolific crop of successful projects built all over the world in the last decade of her life.
