Treo has partnered with Stacey Pfingsten and Louisiana Architectural Foundation. Stacey will introduce «WHO DARES WINS» and will be talking about LAF's upcoming ADFF: NOLA on August 24-27th.
WHO DARES WINS:
Zaha Hadid was born in Baghdad in 1950 and based in London.
Zaha Hadid was perhaps the most successful female architect there has ever been.
She was one of a handful of global superstar designers who have changed the way people think about the world through buildings.
Yet this wasn't always the case; Hadid once had a reputation as unbuildable, a 'paper architect' whose projects began as vivid paintings of gravity-defying shapes exploding into the void.
How did this extraordinary and pioneering woman — by turns charming, stubborn, visionary yet exacting — come to build the impossible?
Imagine's «WHO DARES WINS» visits her buildings across the globe, from Austria to Azerbaijan to find out what made Zaha Hadid tick.
