In case you hadn’t noticed, today is the birthday of the most influential woman in architecture, . So you can’t miss this special Round Up with 9 great projects by the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize. The main image is MAXXI Museum in Rome, where Zaha Hadid intended ‘a new fluid kind of spatiality of multiple perspective points and fragmented geometry, designed to embody the chaotic fluidity of modern life’. Check out, Tondonia Winery Pavilion in La Rioja, Spain or the great London Aquatics Centre for 2012 Summer Olympics. Also in London, ROCA Gallery, a space where the main concept is water erosion. Don’t miss Chamber Music Hall, created for solo performances of Johann Sebastian Bach’s chamber music masterpieces or the amazing Guangzhou Opera House, in China. Like pavilions design? take a look at Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion and Burnham Pavilion in Chicago. Finally, revisit one of our AD Classics: Vitra Fire Station. Happy Birthday Zaha!
