Zaha Hadid's success has been highlighted by yet another award. The Iraqi-born, world-renowned architect was honored with the Aenne Burda Award for Creative Leadership yesterday, January 21, at the international DLD (Digital-Life-Design) Conference in Munich. Since 2006, this annual award has honored female digital entrepreneurs for their visionary and successful ideas. Past recipients include The Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, former journalist and Wall Street technology analyst Esther Dyson, business magnate Martha Stewart, and more.

As reported by Herald Online, Rhode Island School of Design president John Maeda stated: "Leaders are needed when times are changing, creative leaders change times themselves. They make things - like Zaha. She's unafraid to disrupt, she's very optimistic. Today we celebrate her incredible optimism."

The Aenne Burda Award for Creative Leadership honors women of outstanding entrepreneurial and creative achievement. The prize has been conferred annually since 2006 in memory of Aenne Burda, who passed away in 2005. As a visionary entrepreneur in post-WWII Germany, Aenne Burda turned a small publisher into the world's largest fashion publishing house.

Previous DLD Conferences saw the following recipients of the Aenne Burda Award: Marissa Mayer (2006), Caterina Fake (2007), Martha Stewart (2008), Esther Dyson (2009), Mitchell Baker (2010), Natalie Massenet (2011), and Arianna Huffington (2012).

About the DLD (Digital-Life-Design):

DLS is a global network on innovation, digitization, science and culture which connects business, creative and social leader, opinion-formers and influences for crossover conversation and inspiration.
