written by Dr. “Wejdan Dia”, a specialist in architecture.

In her book on Zaha Hadid, Diya confirmed that the basic element of construction, according to Zaha,

depends on two things: “iron” as a basic material for construction, and “the broad imagination.”

Thus, her designs were considered as belonging to a fantasy world on another planet, and this trend is one of the most important architectural movements in the twentieth century.

As the book stated: “The vision of Zaha’s special direction is that it is based on strange and inclined pillars and enjoys fluidity and deconstruction in determining Earth’s gravity,

through an insistence on ceilings and flying beams.”
