For an architect, his design is the best way to explain how intensely they think and research all the parameters. When we talk about the architects who used to design every city on a sheet by hands one name comes to everyone’s mind and that is Zaha Hadid. She was one of the best architects and was best known for her curved yet elegant sense of complex designs. Maker of the 21st century this British Iraqi architect, designer succeeded in making a mark in the world of architecture at a very young age.
