ABOUT ZAHA HADID Born in Baghdad Iraq on October 31 st 1950 mathematics degree at the American University of Beirut Studied at Architectural Association school of architecture in London professor at University of Applied Arts Vienna in Austria In 2004 she was the first female recipient to win the Pritzker Prize "a living architect whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture"
HER INSPIRATION/STYLE "My father took us to see the Sumerian cities. Then we went by boat, and then on a smaller one made of reeds, to visit villages in the marshes.

THE VITRA FIRE STATION It has lots of polygons and triangles that slash through the space around them,that creates movement
PHAENO SCIENCE CENTER The supporting very large angled columns that are intended to let it become part of the urban fabric. And the distorted shape was chosen to imitate movement and transformation. It has broken compound angles with acute interstices
