Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid was an Iraqi-British architect and the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize and the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects. She was described as the “Queen of the Curve” and designed many beautiful buildings, including the aquatic centre for the London 2012 Olympics.
“I will never give myself the luxury of thinking, ‘ I’ve made it. ‘” – Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid
Heads of House: Mr Kench & Mr Underwood
“Zaha Hadid was an amazing woman working in a male dominated industry, and through hard work and determination became one of the greatest architect Britain has known. It gives me great feelings of pride and honour to be asked to be one of the joint heads of a house carrying the name of such an amazing person. Member of house Hadid Should think if this woman on her own can accomplish great things what can we do when we work together.” S.Underwood.
“We are all architects within our society; as an individual we can provide our own vision but it is only through working with others, listening, learning and adopting alternative perspectives, that we become part of a greater whole. Zaha Hadid’s name, her work and her approach is testament to success. I am very proud to be part of House Hadid and all the diversity that lies within it.” J. Kench
House Captain: Chloe Bate
I am honoured to be Hadid House Captain. Mostly, I enjoy getting to know all the girls in my house and competing alongside them in house competitions. I think it is a fantastic scheme which brings girls from different year groups together. It creates friendships and inspires the girls to work in a team. As our house is named after the world renowned female architect Zaha Hadid, we therefore encourage the girls to be creative and help one another other to build their self-confidence so they can express themselves. I look forward to continuing my role as House Captain and hopefully winning this year’s competition!
