RIP Zaha Hadid

This was a very sad day for me.

I talk a lot about the lack of women in architecture. That being said, Zaha Hadid was the most influential woman in the architecture industry for me. She was the one who inspired me to keep going and proved that it was possible for me, as a woman, to be able to be successful in architecture.

This video starts off with sorrow but ends with inspiration. I wanted to end on a high note. I think Zaha would have appreciated being remembered in a brighter light, being remembered for her strength, power, and ability to inspire and impact the lives of millions. 

I am so grateful for her courage and the risks taken by Zaha and the obstacles she overcame so that younger generations could be more accepted in the industry. I feel so lucky to have had her as a role model.
