Please join us on Thursday 2nd November for a screening of ‘Zaha: An Architectural Legacy’. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film makers Laura Mark and Jim Stephenson.

One year after Zaha Hadid died, this film takes a look at Zaha’s career and legacy through five chapters and buildings which signalled significant progressions in her work. From her initial drawings and paintings while at the Architectural Association to her first built project at Vitra, then on to the Stirling Prize-winning MAXXI which secured her place in the architectural canon, and the London Aquatics Centre – a building which made her known among the public – and finally finishing with the Maths Gallery at the Science Museum, completed just months after her
Featuring interviews with those who knew her including long-time collaborator Patrik Schumacher, architects Eva Jiricna and Nigel Coates, urbanist Ricky Burdett and engineer Hanif Kara, the film gives thoughtful insight into the impact Zaha had on the architectural profession. 

“Thank you so much for the superb film on Zaha. It was filmed and edited beautifully. We have received so much feedback from around the world on the film – it was a wonderful tribute that detailed Zaha’s work and legacy in a manner she would have greatly appreciated. So many of Zaha’s friends, family and colleagues have told us how much they enjoyed it, as it captured Zaha and her work so well. The care and attention you put into filming each location – and each interview – is evident in every second. It is such a fitting tribute to Zaha – that impacted us greatly.”
