The Rayograph

“Star”chitecture

Superstar architect Zaha Hadid is quickly becoming one of my favorite architects. Hadid and her team designed the Fondazione MAXXI (Museum of 21st Century Arts), a 30,000-m2 center of contemporary art and architecture. MAXXI – situated in Rome, Italy – was completed in 2009. The center earned Hadid the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) prestigious Stirling Prize, among others. But Hadid’s trophy cabinet is already well-stocked – in fact, in 2004 she was the first female architect to earn what has been referred to as the Nobel Prize of architecture, the Pritzker Prize.
