09 May AIA Equity in Architecture and CAC celebrate Zaha Hadid
On May 7th 2016, AIA Cincinnati’s Equity in Architecture and the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) celebrated the life and work of pioneering architect Zaha Hadid, the designer of the CAC’s home—the Lois and Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art (RCCA).
While the world said goodbye to famed Iraqi-born, British architect Hadid in March after a shocking and unexpected death, the conversation around her enormous influence on the architectural community globally and locally continues.
The RCCA—an architectural gem on the corner of Walnut and Sixth street in downtown Cincinnati—gave Hadid the coveted honor of being the first female architect to design a major museum in the United States. The RCCA was heralded by the New York Times as, “the most important American building to be completed since the end of the cold war.” (Herbert Muschamp, New York Times, June 2003.)
