Dania shaker 1110035 Introduction Zaha Hadid, Iraqi-born British architect who was born in Baghdad Iraq 1950 ,she’s known for her radical deconstructivist designs. She started her own practice in London in 1980 and won the prestigious competition for the Hong Kong Peak Club, a leisure and recreational center in 1983. Ever since her 1983 retrospective exhibition at the AA in London, her architecture has been shown in exhibitions worldwide and many of her works are held in important museum collections. In 2004 she became the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize. She’s one of the most famous architects working today, and around 40 buildings of her work are already dotting the globe.
Zaha Hadid is one of the most recognized architects in the world. She is the first female architect to receive the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize - "the Nobel Prize of architecture". Born on 31 October 1950, she grew up in one of Baghdad's first Bauhaus-inspired buildings during an era in which ‘modernism suggested glamour and progressive thinking’ in the Middle East. During her childhood days, Iraq was a liberal, secular, western-focused country with a fast-growing economy that flourished until the Ba’ath party took power in 1963. Hadid’s father was a politician, economist and industrialist.
One of Zaha Hadid’s greatest influences was Kasmir Malevich. She believed that her interest in abstraction grew due to his works (“The Relationship between Fine Art and Architecture: Kazimir Malevich and Zaha Hadid.”). She said, “I was so obsessed with his work when I was studying and in my early career that I read it over and over again” (“Video: Zaha Hadid Discusses the Influence of Kazimir Malevich on Her Work.”). Her deep philosophical relationship with the artist can be seen in her early work (“Video: Zaha Hadid Discusses the Influence of Kazimir Malevich on Her Work.”). The two artists had many similarities and conveyed their ideas in parallel ways.
Zaha Hadid, often named as the most excellent female architect, was the founder of Zaha Hadid Architects studio. She occupied an important and out-standing position in architecture area and was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004. Each of her designs evolves nearly thirty years of researches and experimentations. Hadid was well-known for her unique ideas, critical thinking, and stream-like architectures. She was born in Baghdad, Iraq in 1950.
The style is some of the most unique and sophisticated pieces of art in the world. For centuries Japanese architects have been receiving global recognition for their brilliant ingenuity. A lot of architecture like Japanese culture has its roots in religion and nature. Although, Japan was influenced by China in its architecture, Japanese architects often find their biggest inspiration in nature. To this day modern structures use ancient building techniques in design.
Throughout history architecture has involved the design of structures for human habitation while conceptualizing space and making sure that they are not merely functional or efficient but habitable and synchronized with the surrounding environment. The importance of architecture in society is unquestioned, but one must question how this architecture begins. When an architect creates Architecture, it is created with the mind; this type of creation is referred to as the “Intellectual Property” of the creator, with both a moral and a commercial value. (Winick, 1992) Architects worry that the valuable design they have created can simply be captivated by individuals who have a wish to steal this property for their own use (Lessig. 1995).
This is apparent as even modern definitions of interior design state that its elements are in fact closely related to architecture. Experienced interior designers and architects both employ scientific as well as artistic skills to qualify in creating or designing spaces that solve problems or meet the requirements of building owners and that is done through spatial design and planning. The spaces created should be pleasingly structured, safe and functional. Generally speaking, Architects and interior designers creative and artistic individuals who usually have cross-over skills, namely space-planning, are up-to-date with a state’s building codes and regulations and closely examine materials, finishes, furnishings and cabinetry to make sure they are the right fit for the client and for the home itself. At times the job of architects overlaps with that of interior designers as they both select the tile, flooring and lighting and design the look/style of a home’s interiors.
Building the World the Arhitect Way Architects are the designers of buildings and other various structures. It is mandatory for architects to have a college degree; it is also vital that a person with this profession is creative and has the ability to draw well. Traveling to different places is one of the benefits of a career in architecture. Some architects do not care about their pay; they often focus on being creative, imaginative, and their drawing skills. Architects are expected to have impressive math, communication, and negotiating skills.
