World-renowned architect Zaha Hadid, perhaps best known for her futuristic architecture, explains how her work is rooted in an art movement that is more than a 100 years old. She has long cited the Russian abstract artist Kazimir Malevich as one of her greatest inspirations. Together with critics and curators of a Malevich exhibition Zaha considers the influence of Malevich’s avant-garde art on her avant-garde architecture.
