Zaha Hadid becomes Google Doodle
Yesterday’s Google Doodle was of the famous Iraqi-born, British architect Zaha Hadid, who sadly died on the 31st March 2016.
Zaha Hadid’s career started late in her life at the age of 44 when her first project, a fire station in Germany, was constructed. Her buildings can be found around the world and include the amazing London 2012 Aquatic Centre and the unique Riverside Museum in Glasgow.
She was the first woman to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004 and also to win the Royal Gold Medal in Architecture from the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Hadid was also honoured by the Queen when she was made a Dame in 2012.
3T RPD has supported Zaha Hadid Architects, her practice, by providing Additive Manufacturing (AM) 3D printed architectural models which show off the practice’s innovative and exciting designs. These include a 3D printed architectural model of their design for the Guggenheim Museum, in Taichung, Taiwan. Our model enabled their clients to not only see the practice’s innovative design but also to touch and feel an actual tactile scale version of the proposal.
