Zaha Hadid Architects (London) has become a world leader in urbanism, architecture and design through projects that integrate man-made systems and preexisting topography. The practice has benefited from its collaborations with leading artists, designers, engineers, and clients, and from its work with state-of-the-art technologies. The MAXXI: National Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome, BMW Central Building in Leipzig, Guangzhou Opera House, and Aquatics Centre for the London 2012 Olympics are salient examples of the firm's dynamic architectonic sensibility. Current projects include the KAPSARC Research Centre in Riyadh, High-Speed train stations in Naples and Durango, an office tower in Marseille, and urban master plans in North Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Zaha Hadid was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004.
