My discovery of Zaha Hadid on Instagram can be easily described as 'love at first sight'. After seeing one photo of her curvaceous architecture, I was hooked, and I was not alone.
Her signature contours, cool textures, geometric details and minimal white interiors elicited a cult of photographers from around the world to visit her creations.
Looking back at her legacy, Hadid was so much more than just a visual inspiration. She paved the way culturally and artistically for women and minorities.
Scattered around the globe now are wondrous, futuristic structures that remind us that if we work hard, we can truly leave a mark in the world.
Below is our humble tribute to her through our own journey in the spaces she crafted.
