Art History: The Architecture of Zaha Hadid

In this program, we will explore the designs of Iraqi-British architect, Zaha Hadid. Hadid recently passed away, but in her career she was responsible for many innovative and visually stunning architectural works. Hadid’s work was truly international (including structures in Europe, Asia, and the United States) and was a pioneer in her choice of materials and use of space. We will look at her design for the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, and also address how Hadid rose to prominence in such a male-dominated field. Presented by CCAD instructor Ann Shifflet.
