Text Quotes
Men think a woman should not have an opinion  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I loved London. In the 1970s... it was very exciting, really wild  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) Different projects give you satisfaction in different ways  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) A brilliant design will always benefit from the input of others  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) Of course I believe imaginative architecture can make a difference to people’s lives, but I wish it was possible to divert some of the effort we put into ambitious museums and galleries into the basic architectural building blocks of society.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I will always have two regrets. I don’t have a presence in London, and I would have liked to have done more work in the Middle East  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) The current state of architecture and design requires extensive collaboration and an investigative attitude and we continue to research and develop new technologies.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) The paintings have only ever been ways of exploring architecture. I don’t see them as art.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) People say I design architectural icons. If I design a building and it becomes an icon, that’s ok.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I have always appreciated designers who dare to reinterpret fabrics and proportions, so I follow the Japanese and Belgian designers. The pieces are so animated. When they lie still, they are one thing, but once you stand them up or wear them, they become something else.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I miss aspects of being in the Arab world - the language - and there is a tranquility in these cities with great rivers. Whether it’s Cairo or Baghdad, you sit there and you think, ‘This river has flown here for thousands of years.’ There are magical moments in these places  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I don’t think people should do things because you know, ‘I am turning this age, I must go have a husband.’ If you find somebody and it works out then have kids, it’s very nice. But if you don’t, you don’t  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) As a woman, I’m expected to want everything to be nice and to be nice myself. A very English thing. I don’t design nice buildings - I don’t like them. I like architecture to have some raw, vital, earthy quality  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) Contrary to popular view, I’ve never been patronized in the Middle East. Men maybe treat women differently, but they do not treat them with disrespect. They don’t hate women. It’s a very different kind of mentality  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) When I was growing up in Iraq, there was an unbroken belief in progress and a great sense of optimism. It was a moment of nation building  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I’m trying to discover - invent, I suppose - an architecture, and forms of urban planning, that do something of the same thing in a contemporary way. I started out trying to create buildings that would sparkle like isolated jewels; now I want them to connect, to form a new kind of landscape, to flow together with contemporary cities and the lives of their peoples  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) Wherever I am in the world, my perfect day begins with waking up and heading to the beach or the pool or somewhere I can be semi-comatose. I just wake up and go to the sun  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) The commission process in America and England is different. In America, they do it through an interview process, and it’s really based on whether they like you or not. I mean, it’s nothing to do with whether you do the best scheme or the worst scheme  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) It’s very important for cities all around the world to reinvent themselves, and Glasgow is a good example of that. The Scots are very nice. I don’t think they are burdened by their history  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I’ve always thought that design can have equal importance to the idea of internal architecture. Professionally, things can be very dogmatic - you do the architecture, someone else does the interiors, someone else does the furniture, the fabric, etc. But I think design is all-encompassing  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I have been interested in fashion since I was a kid. Then I lived in London, where it was more about costume and a personal statement of who you are than about fashion  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I really love Miami, but I don’t think the architecture matches the city. It’s a bit too commercial  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) If I wanted to do clothes or if I wanted to make a building or design a choreography, you are able to do that - they are all under a similar kind of design umbrella.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) For a woman to go out alone into architecture is still very, very hard. It’s still a man’s world.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) People often ask me if I consider myself to be an architect, fashion designer, or artist. I’m an architect. The paintings I’ve done are very important to me, but they were part of a process of thinking and developing.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) Of course, my family helped me, my brothers helped me, but after I set up my own office I had to really help myself. Some people seem to think I had an oil well in my garden! It’s a nice idea but not true.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) Good education is so important. We do need to look at the way people are taught. It not just about qualifications to get a job. It’s about being educated.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) I think about architecture all the time. That’s the problem. But I’ve always been like that. I dream it sometimes.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) People don’t talk to you properly. It’s the way they talk to you; they dismiss you. I think it’s a combination of me being a woman and a foreigner.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes) It would be very interesting to design objects for everyday life, something where the ideas that are expressed can be launched into society.  (Zaha Hadid Quotes)
