Zaha Hadid gets her own Google Doodle

In commemoration of the 13th anniversary of Zaha Hadid winning the Pritzker Prize, the late, Iraqi-born architect has been given a day on the front page of Google. She is shown in front of Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, Azerbaijan, which she and her team designed in 2014. Hadid has been one of the most popular architects in recent decades, from her early paintings and work at the AA with Rem Koolhaas, to her more recent stardom that has produced some of the most dramatic buildings of the late 20th and early 21st century. Her Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, Ohio and the Vitra Fire Station were early signs of the architect's immense talent, while more recently the Heydar Aliyev Center and the Guangzhou Opera House have cemented her legacy as a groundbreaking, visionary architect. Google's Doodle-knighthood of Hadid adds her to a growing list of architects who have been doodled, including Mies van der Rohe, Kenzo Tange, George Gilbert Scott, and Christopher Wren.
