The Zaha Hadid Architecture Firm uses parametric design to model different expressions of classical theories. The process results in more fluid shapes and fruit or “shard” impressions within the firm’s architecture.

Sheathing of new materials, frequently composites, cause light to dance the building surface. Her architecture represents a period when many changes were occurring in global societies. These changes include new markets and emerging classes. New ideas, migration and extensive, complex, robotic tools reshuffled architecture libraries.

To ignore her identity would make it all more glaring. She excelled in a European industry that may have historically alienated people from the Middle East because of political tensions that date centuries.
