Zaha Hadid was a visionary architect. She is responsible for multiple beautiful buildings found in the world including: Vitra Fire Station in Weil Am Rhein, Germany (1993), the Heydar Aliyev Centre in Baku (2013), and Galaxy Soho in Beijing (2012). She had a particular technique and new outlook on the way to make a building look powerful, vintage, or exceptional. She was also so good, her colleagues could not do anything but respect her.
However, the important thing to note here, apart from the lack of acknowledgement in the news, is that she was a female in a male dominated field. She can be considered another person notable for her impressive and fearless efforts in the architecture world. She has teared down her enemies and critics for their name calling of her as a “diva”. She fought back with the slap-in-the-face comment- “Would they call me a diva if I were a man?”
Such a comment brings up a good point. Rich women who demand things are often given the title as “diva” when they are assertive and picky. They are never considered determined, particular, focused, or self-assured. This is a constant issue that arises, that does get in the way of females actually asking or going forward with what they want exactly when in a position as elite as Hadid’s. Women are often criticized for this behavior, and so hold back. But women mustn’t subject themselves to this narrow minded and backwards opinion. Especially when that opinion or idea is better than another, and will make all the difference one feels it will ( in regards to creative ideas).
