Shortly after the groundbreaking MAXXI in Rome and a few days before the dedication of the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, Zaha Hadid returns to the AA to present current projects.
Zaha Hadid studied at the AA from 1972 and was awarded the Diploma Prize in 1977. She joined OMA in the same year and started teaching in Dip 9 with her former tutors Rem Koolhaas and Elia Zenghelis, before leading her own unit until 1987. More recently, she held the Kenzo Tange Chair at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard; the Sullivan Chair of the University of Illinois; and has held several guest professorships. Her work has been both widely published and the subject of several major exhibitions.
