Zaha Hadid: The Starchitect’s Manchester

Today the world of Architecture is reeling from Zaha Hadid’s death. Her impression on the built environment of countless cities across the world will remain for decades to come. Zaha’s practice narrowly lost out in the competition to built the new Factory Arts Centre in Manchester, but there was one structure she did design here.

The architect developed a temporary structure for the high-arts Manchester International Festival in 2009 which sat within the Manchester Art Gallery. See the below image and links for more:
