    A big congrats to her on her achievements. however, It bafflingly how Architects are soley glorified with no acknowledgement given to the Structural Engineers that made this edifices stand, talk more of standing the test of time

    I noticed the people are with natural talent always have short temper.
    They have clear vision of their work. But it’s hard to explain others who has Lower or different understanding.
    Specially art is a hard way to proof your talent.
    Every one can’t think like you, so you get criticise a lot and some time tagged with un skill full or arrogant for noting.

    It's important to remember her designs are breathtaking and extremely difficult to construct. She was doing small buildings, a lot of her designs were on paper until she was given opportunities by Soho China owned by Zheng Xin and Pan Shiyi. From there she had workloads in total of over 1.5 million square metres of buildings design floor area in Beijing and Shanghai. She gradually took off, making her architecture firm an icon, from a design team of 5 initially to now over 400.

    The first building may be the only one to be saved but all the others are the ugly results of star architecture system that doesn't compromise with any lochal history and aesthetics. In my opion and being fan of MODERN architecture her work is quite empty shallow and only made for wow effects therefore predictably boring. Although her studio/group of architects seems promising. At the end her only positive note is that she wasn't responsible for the new london skyline one of the worst I ever seen since obviously all China's.

    Wish, Saddam Hussein could concentrate on nurturing the talents of Iraqis instead of bulldozing talents and inviting the outsiders to invade in that beautiful country of Iraq! Iraq could become the new modern Babylon if it could avoid the hatreds and war in their good economic periods

    My lecturers in the architecture school used to say how unnecessary her architecture was. I came to realization over the years that 1- she is a true artist 2 – she was good at marketing – simple. I think if we have strong convictions (how we think the world should be) + the willpower to persist in face of difficulties we all probably can be some type of Zaha manifestation, not like her but unique in our own ways. I think Zaha is great inspiration not because of her architecture but because of the way she went about pursuing what she loved.
