Characterized by her highly experimental nature and impeccable eye, Zaha Hadid is a design force to reckon with. Her work full of form, curves, and fragmented geometry possesses a futuristic quality meanwhile remaining substantial rather than just fashionable. Having several accolades under her belt, she has recently been honored by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) with the 2016 Royal Gold Medal. We would like to congratulate our long time friend Zaha Hadid on this remarkable achievement. IMAGES
