“It is with great sadness that Zaha Hadid Architects have confirmed that Dame Zaha Hadid died suddenly in Miami in the early hours of this morning,” the company said in a statement.

“She had contracted bronchitis earlier this week and suffered a sudden heart attack while being treated in hospital.”

Her projects also include the MAXXI museum in Rome, the Heydar Aliyev Centre in Baku, and a condominium along Manhattan’s High Line park.

“So sad to hear of death of Zaha Hadid, she was an inspiration and her legacy lives on in wonderful buildings in Stratford & around the world,” London Mayor Boris Johnson wrote on Twitter.
