“Zaha Hadid was born in a time and place where girls were “nice,” lines and angles were straight and buildings were “practical” and designed by men.” But Zaha saw the world differently. She shows us what can happen when you set about breaking rules and building greatness.
Her story is a favorite of mine, and one shared by WS Writer, Yara Zgheib this week on WomanScape. Zaha’s life and architectural greatness empower women and fill the pages of history with hope, especially in these difficult times. The Galaxy Soho in Beijing (pictured above) is a unique 15 floor structure of interconnected bridges to courtyards, offices, shops and entertainment venues.
Read more stories like Zaha’s or purchase our latest WS magazine aptly named WHAT IF as a gift for yourself or a friend. It will entertain, enlighten and inspire you to a larger sense of purpose and shared humanity in the world.
Have a great week, and let’s make life better, one story at a time.
