Hadid was born in 1950 in Baghdad, Iraq. She received a degree in mathematics from the American University of Beirut before moving to study at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. In 1980 she established her own London-based practice. During the 1980s she also taught at the Architectural Association.
For me Zaha Hadid is one of the most creative architects and has prove this time and time again with these magical buildings.
