Zaha Hadid is the first woman and first Muslim to win the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest honour.

Zaha Hadid was the first woman and first Muslim to win the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest honour. She designed the whale-like London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Olympics Games and the extraordinary Maaxi Museum in Rome. Her designs are challenging and innovative and she is at the forefront of changing tastes in architecture and design today.

After years of failing to get her designs built, her distinctive work is now in great demand all over the world from Germany to the USA and from China to Iraq. Zaha Hadid talks to Razia Iqbal and an audience in London at the Royal Institute of British Architects about her work and the future of architecture.
