After the death of Hadid, her Team kept her Legacy and her Firm alive. They continued to work on the projects started by their mentor and led them to completion. Till this day there isn’t one single project started by Hadid that her team didn’t finish in her memory and following her directions! In the new projects, the Zaha Hadid Architects strive to achieve the vision of Zaha Hadid and her attention to futuristic detail and, by doing so, they continue to be considered a reference within the Architectural and Design industries.
