Love these awesome illustrated vignettes of buildings – vehicles or landscapes by pixego. The perspective + night renders are terrific!
What a shocker – I have admired her work immensely – probably one of the most original + breaker of norms + status quo + glass ceiling.

Her architectural signature is recognizable the world around. Someone titled her The Queen of Curves! How apt indeed.
Most definitely sitting in the pinnacle forum of those top of them all architects. She was an all around nice person – not a diva.

Zaha Hadid’s early work played a huge role in my development as a designer. She was one of the best to ever do it. This is one of her paintings from 1982. What a gift.
"Zaha’s drawings were never pure representation or simple formal research, but necessary tools for design production. Early drawings were a means of altering and modifying the plan, leading to the disappearance of difference between 2D and 3D.
In an interview, Hadid describes that she was attempting to appropriate the moving quality of elemental forms in Malevichs’ paintings in order to inject the idea of motion and energy in architecture, and thus free the plan from its static role."

Zaha Hadid is not only the most distinct, successful and influential architect of her generation, she is also among the most intellectual.
Her works are often described as fluid, curvilinear and organic, featuring unique lines and shapes and oblique inspirations.
