Hadid has worked with undaunting determination to establish herself in the predominantly ‘male’ world of architecture. She continues to strive for perfection and an honest realisation of her visions. Her refusal to compromise in the execution of her designs has resulted in loss of commissions and some magnificent designs never leaving the drawing board. But it is exactly this unwavering determination that has pushed Hadid into the spotlight of contemporary architectural design. She does not allow anything to dilute the purity of her work. Like many great artists and designers before her, Hadid knows the risks associated with setting aside her principles for the sake of saving a business deal. She just doesn’t do it, her artistic integrity and ideologies remain paramount. This is largely what sets Zaha Hadid apart and gets her noticed.
