  8. 8. Quotes Zaha Hadid - From the Commitment category: I mean, really - you have to go at it full time. You can't afford to dip in and out. Zaha Hadid - From the Architecture category: In another way, I can be my own worst enemy. As a woman, I'm expected to want everything to be nice, and to be nice myself. A very English thing. I don't design nice buildings - I don't like them. I like architecture to have some raw, vital, earthy quality. Zaha Hadid - From the Contemporary Art category: one of the things I feel confident in saying we can do is bring some excitement, and challenges, to people's lives. We want them to be able to embrace the unexpected. Zaha Hadid - From the Eccentricity category: I am eccentric, I admit it, but I am not a nutcase.
  9. 9. Her inspiration She is inspired from the Rivers, and dunes. she says, “the fluid landscape of the Middle East.” Donna Karan, says, “Whatever the medium, Zaha imparts lyricism and sensuality.
