Lecturer: Colin Davies
Colin Davies is a professor of Architectural Theory and former editor or Architects Journal. Dame Zaha Hadid died in 2016, aged 65. Architecural historians of the future will most likely recognise her as one of the most important architects of the early 21 st Century. She was born in Iraq and her reputation was global, but she made her home in Britain.
This lecture tells the story of her career from the visionary projects of the 1980's, throughout the years of frustration when her designs were considered unbuildable, to the prolific crop of successful projects built all over the world in the last decade of her life.
The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies has changed its name to The Arts Society. The Helmsley branch is now The Arts Society Helmsley
