What I Love About Zaha Hadid

I was in Tampa working with Clients when I heard the news of Zaha’s passing. Though I never met her in person, I felt the loss of her.  She represented greatness to me and I felt  we had lost a courageous woman sage of our time.

Julia Molloy discusses Zaha Hadid impactShe was more than an innovator. More than a great architect. More than an amazingly effective leader. She had the heart of a lion and the soul of an eagle. She powered through every obstacle, every male-dominated conference room and job site. She conquered every hurtle of nature and man made politics to see her visions come to life. Her work was feminine energy embodied; curvy, complex, integrated and inclusive of its environment. Her way of being reminded me of the power of a woman. She was a force. I loved her from afar.

What I found inspiring about Zaha as a creative and a business owner:

  1. She had no problem being a hard ass.

She didn’t derive her sense of value from her physical appearance.

She was super smart.

Her creations were original and ground-breaking.

She excelled in a largely male-dominated profession and pioneered new ground for women.

Her buildings were curvy and beautiful.

 Zaha will continue to inspire me and countless others for generations. I will do my best to continue to walk the path that she so beautiful carved out for us. Thank You, Zaha.

Enjoy your flight into the beyond.
