Zaha Hadid was not just an architect, but an inventor of spaces. Known for her cutting-edge structures that pushed technology and design to the greatest extremes, the Iraqi-born, London-based architect was the first woman to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Though Hadid died unexpectedly last year, she left behind an unrivalled legacy that includes a number of uncompleted works, including China’s Jumeirah Nanjing. Expected to open late this year, the hotel, which will be a part of a large mixed-use development in Nanjing’s new Hexi business district, will feature 250 rooms (with 32 suites), multiple dining venues, and a Talise Spa. Typical of Hadid’s avant-garde aesthetic, the structure will feature the bold lines and striking curves for which the architect was so adamantly revered.
