Telling the story of this pre-eminent architect, we look at some of Hadid's completed works as well as unexecuted designs

Before her untimely death in 2016, Dame Zaha Hadid was one of the most distinguished architects in the world, as well as a talented designer. In addition to numerous awards and honours, she received the Pritzker Prize for Architecture in 2004; the UK's most prestigious architectural award, the RIBA Stirling Prize, in 2010 and 2011; and the Royal Gold Medal in 2015. In 2012 she was made a Dame for services to architecture. This lecture tells the story of this pre-eminent architect. We move around the world to look at some of her completed works, including her most famous building in the UK, the Aquatics Centre for the London Olympics in 2012, as well as unexecuted designs.
