Zaha Hadid is the first sole female recipient of the prestigious RIBA Royal Gold Medal

“Zaha Hadid is a formidable and globally-influential force in architecture,” says RIBA President and chair of the selection committee, Jane Duncan. “Highly experimental, rigorous and exacting, her work from buildings to furniture, footwear and cars, is quite rightly revered and desired by brands and people all around the world. I am delighted Zaha will be awarded the Royal Gold Medal in 2016 and can’t wait to see what she and her practice will do next.” Hadid stated in a press release that she was “proud to be awarded the Royal Gold Medal, in particular, to be the first woman to receive the honor in her own right.”
