Congratulations to Zaha Hadid for winning the 2016 RIBA Gold Medal and for being the first women to do so in her own right.
A very interesting radio interview is transcribed here about the fate of construction workers at the Qatar World Cup Stadium. Don’t call Zaha scary and then attempt a series of poor, under researched questions is the moral here.
