Zaha Hadid to become UNESCO Artist for Peace

Iraqi-born British architect Zaha Hadid will be officially named UNESCO Artist for Peace on 24th June during a ceremony at the organisation’s headquarters in Paris. Hadid’s bold designs are constantly at the forefront of public debate, with her innovative buildings gracing major cities in Europe, Asia and America. The Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, said the appointment was “in recognition of her efforts to raise public awareness of inter-cultural dialogue, to promote excellence in design and creativity, and her dedication to the ideals and aims of the organisation”.

Whilst Hadid’s main focus remains on designing structural architecture, she has also dabbled in other design sectors, including clothes and furniture. However it is her striking architectural creations for which she is most famous and for which she was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2004. Now Hadid is being firmly recognised by the independent civil society organisation, which designates the Artist for Peace title to those renowned personalities who use their influence, charisma and prestige to promote UNESCO’s message.
