Zaha Hadid was one of the most famous, highly respected personalities in the world of international design and architecture. The formal language she used was visionary, and her spectacular architecture was totally innovative. In 2004, she was awarded the Pritzker Prize, the world's most prestigious award for architects. Everything that Zaha Hadid designed is based on the same high standards: it is new, unprecedented, superbly conceived – and it works. With her wall design for the Marburg Wallpaper Factory, she burst the bounds of traditional ways of seeing things. Zaha Hadid died on 31 March 2016 from cardiac arrest following bronchitis.
