Parametric Style: Radical Architecture by Zaha Hadid

"Hadid was born in 1950 in Baghdad, Iraq. She received a degree in mathematics from the American University of Beirut before moving to study architecture in London" - see more projects here.

Absolutely gorgeous, flowing shapes... In 2004 Hadid became the first female recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, architecture's equivalent of the Nobel Prize.
