Our June lecture on Tuesday 11th June will be given by Colin Davies – his topic is Zaha Hadid – Architectural Superstar

Architectural historians of the future will surely recognise Dame Zaha as one of the most important architects of the early 21st century. She was born in Iraq and her reputation was global, but she made Britain her home. This lecture tells the story of her career from the visionary projects of the 1980s, through the years of frustration when her designs were considered unbuildable, to the prolific crop of successful projects built all over the world in the last decade of her life.
