At age 65 on the 31st of March, Dame Zaha Ha­did passed away of a heart at­tack in Mi­ami, while be­ing treated for bron­chi­tis. She was the first woman and Mus­lim to re­ceive the Pritzker Ar­chi­tec­ture Prize in 2004, and was cred­ited as the per­son who lib­er­ated ar­chi­tec­tural ge­om­e­try. Her works were highly ex­pres­sive, and had sweep­ing, fluid forms with mul­ti­ple per­spec­tive points and ge­om­e­try that evokes the chaos and flux of mod­ern life. Her works in­cluded the aquatic cen­ter for the 2012 Lon­don Olympics, the US Broad Art Mu­seum, and the Guangzhou Opera House. Space hon­ors her mem­ory with some of her works that they had the op­por­tu­nity to re­tail, such as the B&B Italia Moon Sys­tem.
