Zaha Hadid Art Quotes - (12 quotes)

Zaha Hadid - From the Architecture category:

Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space... On the one hand it's about shelter, but it's also about pleasure. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Architecture category:

In another way, I can be my own worst enemy. As a woman, I'm expected to want everything to be nice, and to be nice myself. A very English thing. I don't design nice buildings - I don't like them. I like architecture to have some raw, vital, earthy quality. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Commitment category:

I mean, really - you have to go at it full time. You can't afford to dip in and out. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Contemporary Art category:

One of the things I feel confident in saying we can do is bring some excitement, and challenges, to people's lives. We want them to be able to embrace the unexpected. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Depression category:

It was such a depressing time. I didn't look very depressed, maybe, but it was really dire. I made a conscious decision not to stop, but it could have gone the other way. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Eccentricity category:

I am eccentric, I admit it, but I am not a nutcase. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Gender category:

For a woman to go out alone into architecture is still very, very hard. It's still a man's world. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Influence category:

-on villages of the marshes in southern Iraq...
The beauty of the landscape - where sand, water, reeds, birds, buildings, and people all somehow flowed together - has never left me. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Painting category:

The paintings have only ever been ways of exploring architecture. I don't see them as art. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Relaxation category:

I had a month off, sort of, this summer. I had this great idea of just lying by the pool doing nothing, like any other girl. But, for one thing, I can't stop thinking, and for another, I was in Lebanon. This year's bombing raids started the day after I arrived. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Success category:

When women do succeed, the press, even the industry press, spend far too much time talking about how we dress, what shoes we're wearing, who we're meant to be seeing. That's pretty sad for women, especially when it's written by women who really should know better. (Zaha Hadid)

Zaha Hadid - From the Teaching category:

-on teaching a new generation of architects...
No. I don't have the patience, and I'm not very tactful. People say I can be frightening. (Zaha Hadid)
