9 Unbuilt Zaha Hadid Buildings That Celebrate Her Bold Vision

You may step inside any project she’s designed—from stadiums and museums, to hotels and fire stations is an eye-opening experience—but the unbuilt Zaha Hadid buildings offer similarly inspiring insights into her uncompromising vision.

Regarded as one of the most talented architects of our time, the late architect’s determination to challenge the status quo has left a legacy that redefines the boundaries of architectural convention. Her approach is demonstrated through her studio’s extensive portfolio, featuring instant icons that diverge from the typical architectural style to create iconic additions to skylines around the world. Yet, as we delve into the depths of her genius, we discover an indelible mark evident not only in her built structures, but in the concepts that remain unrealized. In these visions that never came to pass, the creative mind of Zaha Hadid is just as extraordinary; if not just a little too ahead of their time.
