The Arts Society presents Zoom lecture 'Zaha Hadid - Architectural Superstar'

Dame Zaha Hadid died on March 31st 2016 at age of 65. Architectural historians of the future will surely recognise her as one of the most important architects of the early 21st century. She was born in Iraq and her reputation was global, but she made Britain her home.

This lecture tells 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.

Colin Davies is an architect, a former editor of The Architects' Journal and until recently Professor of Architectural Theory at London Metropolitan University. He has written books as 'Thinking about Architecture', 'Key Houses of the Twentieth Century' and several monographs on the work of architects such as Norman Foster, Michael Hopkins and Nicholas Grimshaw. His latest book, 'A New History of Modern Architecture', was published in 2017.
