Zaha Hadid Architects is a British architecture and design firm founded by Zaha Mohammad Hadid and Patrik Schumacher. Their main office is situated in Clerkenwell, London. Zaha Hadid, the founding partner of Zaha Hadid Architects, was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004.
Each of her dynamic and innovative projects builds on over thirty years of revolutionary experimentation and research in the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture, and design. Working with senior office partner Patrik Schumacher, Hadid’s interest is in the rigorous interface between architecture, landscape, and geology as the practice integrates natural topography and human-made systems that lead to experimentation with cutting-edge technologies.
Currently, the practice is working on a multitude of projects including; the KAPSARC Research Centre in Riyadh, the Aquatics Centre for the London 2012 Olympic Games, High-Speed Train Stations in Naples and Durango, the CMA CGM Head Office tower in Marseille, and urban master plans in Cairo, Istanbul, China, Singapore, and the Middle East.
Collaborations with artists, designers, engineers, and clients that lead their industries have advanced the practice’s diversity and knowledge, whilst the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies have aided the realization of fluid, dynamic, and therefore complex architectural structures
Zaha Hadid Architects continues to be a global leader in pioneering research and design investigation.
