Architect Zaha Hadid has been awarded an Honorary Degree by Goldsmiths, University of London, which will be presented next month.

The university described her as “one of the most gifted practitioners of the art of architecture today” and stated her inventive approach, and eagerness to challenge conventions, has pushed the boundaries of architecture and urban design.

Liz Bromley, secretary of Goldsmiths, said: “Our honorands this year are a remarkable group of people. They have changed communities through their inspiring architectural designs.

“They have pointed out the ridiculous in the news and made us laugh. They have inspired us with their words, their music, and their art. They have fought for our rights. And they have helped us to understand who we are now by looking to the past.

“Today we are celebrating their achievements. We have invited them to join the Goldsmiths family and will be welcoming them into our community. They will now be a part of an institution that prides itself on empowering individuals from all walks of life to become visionaries, just like them.”
