ZHA was founded in 1980 in London by Iraqi-British architect, artist and mathematician Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) and is currently directed by German-born architect and philosopher Patrik Schumacher (b. 1961).
From early projects, such as the Vitra Fire Station in Weil am Rhein (1993, the first completed building designed by Zaha Hadid), the practice’s works have always been characterized by a formal and conceptual research aimed to go beyond traditional architectural models and stereotypes.
Zaha Hadid won both the Pritzker Prize and the Stirling Prize, widely considered the most important international awards for architecture.
Inexhibit has visited, reviewed and published projects by ZHA on many occasions.
We are proud to say that many official photos used by Zaha Hadid Architects to depict works such as the Messner Corones Museum were made by Inexhibit.
