Zaha Hadid Quote: “Women are always told, ‘You’re not going to make it, its too difficult, you can’t do that, don’t enter this competition, you’ll never win it,’ – they need confidence in themselves and people around them to help them to get on.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “You really have to have a goal. The goal posts might shift, but you should have a goal. Know what it is you want to find out.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “The beauty of the landscape – where sand, water, reeds, birds, buildings, and people all somehow flowed together – has never left me.”

Zaha Hadid Quote: “Half of architecture students are women, and you see respected, established female architects all the time.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “I used to not like being called a ‘woman architect.’ I’m an architect, not just a woman architect.

Zaha Hadid Quote: “Wherever I am in the world, my perfect day begins with waking up and heading to the beach or the pool or somewhere I can be semi-comatose. I just wake up and go to the sun.”

Zaha Hadid Quote: “It’s not my duty as an architect to look at it.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “I’ve always thought that design can have equal importance to the idea of internal architecture. Professionally, things can be very dogmatic – you do the architecture, someone else does the interiors, someone else does the furniture, the fabric, etc. But I think design is all-encompassing.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “Architecture is particularly difficult for women; there’s no reason for it to be. I don’t want to blame men or society, but I think it was for a long time, the clients were men, the building industry is all male.”

Zaha Hadid Quote: “When women do succeed, the press, even the industry press, spend far too much time talking about how we dress, what shoes we’re wearing, who we’re meant to be seeing. That’s pretty sad for women, especially when it’s written by women who really should know better.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “I miss aspects of being in the Arab world – the language – and there is a tranquility in these cities with great rivers. Whether it’s Cairo or Baghdad, you sit there and you think, ‘This river has flown here for thousands of years.’ There are magical moments in these places.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “When I was growing up in Iraq, there was an unbroken belief in progress and a great sense of optimism. It was a moment of nation building.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “People often ask me if I consider myself to be an architect, fashion designer, or artist. I’m an architect. The paintings I’ve done are very important to me, but they were part of a process of thinking and developing.”

Zaha Hadid Quote: “The paintings have only ever been ways of exploring architecture. I don’t see them as art.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “I don’t think people should do things because you know, ‘I am turning this age, I must go have a husband.’ If you find somebody and it works out then have kids, it’s very nice. But if you don’t, you don’t.”
Zaha Hadid Quote: “Being Iraqi taught me to be very cautious.”
