was a revolutionary architect, who for many years achieved critical acclaim and won numerous prizes, while building almost nothing. Some even said her work was unbuildable.During the latter years of her life, Hadid’s daring visions became a reality, bringing a unique new architectural language to cities and structures as varied as the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, hailed by The New York Times as “the most important new building in America since the Cold War;”
the Phaeno Science Center
in Wolfsburg, Germany, and the Central Building of the BMW Assembly Plant
in Leipzig. At the time of her death in 2016, Hadid was firmly established among the élite of world architecture, her audacious and futuristic designs having catapulted her to international fame, including the Pritzker Prize for architecture
and prestigious RIBA Royal Gold Medal.
