Capable of translating her imagination into images, and making those images into architecture, in 2004, Zaha Hadid was the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Pritzker Prize.
Courageous and with a strong language that cannot be defined by any traditional architectural label, Zaha Hadid has constantly challenged the recognized limits of architecture, town-planning and design, creating works with complex spatial entities, rembodying a dynamism and a fluidity that always relates to the landscape and the geology of the site.
Her designs are acclaimed examples of a kind of architecture that transforms the idea of the future through unexplored spatial concepts and visionary forms. Her current projects include the National Museum of 21st-century Art in Rome.
In 2009, the two-yearly International Barbara Cappochin Architecture Exhibition in Padua is devoting a whole exhibition to the work of this British citizen of Iraqi extraction.
Soft lines which are more typical of painting and sculpture, the preparatory moments before she creates the design, constituent parts of the building which appear not to create a proper dialog and, more particularly, flexible materials, able to bend to meet any kind of transformation requirement are the elements of an imaginative language that never strays away from the path of precision.
