“This is absolutely terrible news. Dame Zaha Hadid was an inspirational woman, and the kind of architect one can only dream of being. Visionary and highly experimental, her legacy despite her young age, is formidable. She leaves behind a body of work from buildings to furniture, footwear and cars, that delight and astound people all around the world. It was only last month that I had the enviable task of awarding Zaha the 2016 Royal Gold Medal for architecture – she was delighted to receive the recognition and adds the medal to an amazing collec- tion of awards, not least winning the RIBA Stirling Prize years running. The world of architecture has lost a star.” Tony Chapman, RIBA Honorary

Fellow and past Head of Awards added: “Many of us will feel personally dimin- ished by Zaha’s death. Her imagination

and her determination – qualities she had in equal measure –made her unique in architecture. And in recent years technology has caught up with that incredible imagination, meaning the world was able to share in the joy of her work, a privilege previously only shared by the cognoscenti. I have had the pleas- ure to visit a large number of her build- ings over the past two decades and they are always far more persuasive and delightful in reality than on the screen or the page. She made beguiling places in a way few others could: witness the dynamism of her elevations


Montpelier, the way the routes in MAXXI and the Vienna University Library inveigle the visitor, or the overhead tracks of BMWs in Leipzig amaze with the strength of a single idea. “The discrepancy between the

expectation and the actuality were perhaps even more marked in the person: many went to meet her in trepidation of her reputation, yet within minutes were won over by her wit and charm. At the time the RIBA finally recognised her

unique talent with the Royal Gold Medal, I interviewed her at length for an as yet uncompleted film. Within minutes both our guards were down and we were simply enjoying ourselves, talking of achievements and of what might have been. For a considerable number of her projects never came to fruition and I wonder how many more –for all the bril- liance of the team she leaves behind –the world will never now see.”

On 9 April, a large team of us took part in the Royal British Legion Major Series, a demanding 5K course full of military obstacles and thick mud, to raise money for the Kids Cancer Charity. Wading through muddy streams,

‘stench trenches’, under barbed wire , aquaplaning down a 50ft water slide and a number of other obstacles. we all completed the course with only minor scrapes and bruises. To see more pictures of the team or to sponsor us please visit and enter reference number 22446.
