Pritzker Winner Zaha Hadid Profiled

The Financial Times profiles Zaha Hadid, who was awarded the Pritzker prize, architecture's most prestigious award.

"I can't recall an article about or interview with Zaha Hadid in which she is not described as a diva... But Hadid, despite her influence, was often dismissed as a dreamer, whose work was unrealisable and impractical. The memory of this dismissal makes the breadth of her current portfolio extremely surprising... With the recent successful opening of Cincinatti's Museum of Modern Art and a slew of large-scale schemes under construction in the US and continental Europe, the turnaround has been rapid."
