Miami home of iconic Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid for sale at $10m


The three-bedroom home of the late, great, Baghdad-born, award winning  architect Zaha Hadid, has been put on the market in Miami for $10 million, Forbes magazine reports. The condo, inside the W Hotel, was redesigned by the architect in 2009 when she bought the residence. It measures 2,229 square feet and boasts three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Hadid used it primarily as a vacation home, according to Rex Hamilton, the property’s listing agent.

Hadid, an Iraqi-born British architect whose soaring structures left a mark on skylines and imaginations around the world and in the process reshaped architecture for the modern age, died in Miami in March 2016 at age 65. She was one of a handful of global architects whose involvement on a project instantly conveyed a sense of prestige and cosmopolitan flair. Hadid stood out not for glassy skyscrapers but for her inventive, and often logistically challenging designs, which are on display in cities around the world.

Her most notable projects include the National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome, the London Aquatic Centre, built for the 2012 Olympic Games, and the Vitra Fire Station in Weil Am Rhein, Germany, as well as the wonderfully futuristic Museum of  Performing Arts on Saddiyat Island, linked by a road bridge to  Abu Dhabi in the UAE.

A Pritzker Prize-winning architect, Hadid also created Miami’s One  Thousand Museum, her first and final residential tower in the Western Hemisphere. A home is currently for sale in that building for $7 million. The 5,500-square-foot apartment features sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach.
