Dame Zaha Hadid, Architect Anthea Streeter Tuesday 09 October 2018

Before her untimely death in 2016, Dame Zaha Hadid was one of the most distinguished architects in the world. The 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.
