Yesterday, the design community bid farewell to one of the great creative minds of our time. Iraqi-born British architect Zaha Hadid died of a heart attack at the age of 65, leaving behind an architectural legacy that has changed the face of our cities and homes.

Born in Baghdad in 1950, Hadid studied architecture under the legendary Rem Koolhaas. The first woman to win the Pritzker Prize, Hadid’s super-futuristic, undulating forms have made their mark from the Tyrolean Alps to Dubai, from Azerbaijan to London’s Olympics Aquatic Center. In celebration of her life, we’d love to share some of her most imaginative buildings and interiors.
