From the New York website: The late Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, whose curving, fluid designs pushed the limits of building shapes, topped architecture and design magazine Dezeen’s 2016 list of the most talked-about design figures in the world.

The list was compiled through a survey of audience data and also included Bjarke Ingels, Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, and Peter Zumthor.

“The sad passing of Zaha Hadid was the most talked-about topic in architecture and design over the past 12 months, helping to secure the late architect top position on both the Architecture Hot List and the overall list,” Dezeen said.

Hadid died suddenly from a heart attack in Miami in March. Her most notable projects included the MAXXI: Italian National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome and the London Aquatics Center built for the 2012 Olympic Games.

In Miami, she designed One Thousand Museum, an 83-unit, 62-story condo tower that is under construction. The building, developed by Louis Birdman, Gregg Covin and the Regalia Group, is expected to open in late 2018.I

In New York, the finishing touches are being put on a Hadid-designed property developed by the Related Companies at 520 West 28th Street. The spaceship-like condo is directly adjacent to the High Line.

Japanese architects and designers, including the likes of architect Kengo Kuma, accounted for five of the Dezeen list’s top 20 spots. [Dezeen]Katherine Clarke
