Let Hadid’s legacy inspire local architects for new gallery design

Re: Pritzker Prize-winning architect Hadid renowned for creativity, April 4


The sudden death of the famous architect Dame Zaha Hadid creates a void in the field of modern architectu­re. A very gifted trailblaze­r, she leaves behind a breathtaki­ng body of work renowned for its flowing elegance and intense beauty.

As a Vancouveri­te I would hope our local architects will seriously look into Zaha’s legacy as a source of inspiratio­n and submit a better model for the new Vancouver Art Gallery than the hideous maquette under considerat­ion.

Our cherished city deserves nothing less than a graceful and attractive building for the arts in the eye-popping style of Zaha Hadid. Eddy A. Elia, Vancouver
