Zaha Hadid
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

Zaha Hadid
It's very important for cities all around the world to reinvent themselves, and Glasgow is a good example of that. The Scots are very nice. I don't think they are burdened by their history.
Zaha Hadid
Architecture is how the person places herself in the space. Fashion is about how you place the object on the person.
Zaha Hadid
My father was a socialist, so he would have thought that I shouldn't be a dame.
Zaha Hadid
As a woman, I'm expected to want everything to be nice and to be nice myself. A very English thing. I don't design nice buildings - I don't like them. I like architecture to have some raw, vital, earthy quality.
Zaha Hadid
