Zaha Hadid, the 1st woman to receive the Royal Gold Medal by The Royal Institute of British Architects

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has just awarded the 2016 Royal Gold Medal for architecture to the architect Zaha Hadid.

Zaha Hadid becomes now the first woman to be awarded this prestigious honour as she was the first woman to receive the Pritzer prize in 2004, considered as the “Nobel prize” of Architecture.

Famously known to be the designer of the London Olympic Games’ Aquatics Centre in 2012, we can find her work all around the world, from Baku to Cincinnati including Rome and Seoul.   

Lalique is very proud to collaborate since 2014 with this talented architect and designer who designed the collection of crystal vases, Crystal Architecture, for Lalique:
