Zaha Hadid Architects

AJ100 Ranking


‘We are clearly facing a moment of transition,’ admits Zaha Hadid Architects director Jim Heverin.

The last few months have not been easy for the company. The sudden death of founder Zaha Hadid from a heart attack in March shook the entire profession but was a particular blow to the thriving global practice.

The firm, now headed by Patrik Schumacher with the support of directors Heverin, Gianluca Racana, Charles Walker and Mouzhan Majidi – who joined the practice from Foster + Partners almost two years ago – is having to find its feet without its figurehead.

‘The challenge will be for us to come to the fore more than before,’ says Heverin. ‘We will continue the legacy of Zaha. She would have wanted us to continue the work in the manner in which she set up the practice. That is obviously the biggest task facing us in the coming years.’
