Architect Zaha Hadid becomes a dame

By Naila Missous 

Zaha Hadid has been awarded the prestigious title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her services to architecture in the Queen’s birthday honours which were announced back in June 2012.

The 62-year-old Iraqi born architect, who was responsible for the design of the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park, was finally awarded at a ceremony held at Buckingham Palace yesterday.

The much-celebrated Aquatics Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has been described as an elegantly swooping form which many have compared to a stingray. Internally, the building has two 50m swimming pools and a 25m diving pool, all three of which are now open to the public after the conclusion of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Hadid has built a reputation not only as an extreme avant-garde visionary in architecture but also as a demanding and outspoken figure and a pioneer for women in her profession.
