Design International was saddened to hear the news of Zaha Hadid's passing on 31st March 2016. She was an iconic architect, pushing the bounderies to another level and inspiring others. Design International' CEO, Davide Padoa, pays tribute to her:
"I learnt with sadness of Zaha Hadid's passing today. Like many architects of my generation, I admired Her thinking 'out-of-the-box' and studied with curiosity Her parable from artist to architect and back. I loved Her early drawings when I was at university in Milan, I met Her later in London in the late nineties for a job interview as she was quickly becoming one of the most wanted international architects, our path came across once again in Rabat as she was the selected architect for the Grand Theatre and Design International was hired to design a new Morocco Mall right in front of it. Zaha's life might have gone too quickly but her phenomenal and futuristic work will last centuries ahead and it will inspire many future generations."
