We have all come too far away from the fundamentals. We have surrendered more and more to engineers, who manage to prop up any design and manage to heat and cool any kind of shape. Ultimately we are the losers: everything has left architecture, except whimsy and fashion.

There is a difference between principles and fashion.

Architecture is like a mountain. It can’t move.

Film is very close to architecture. Both are dealing with the way light falls on an object and defines it but the difference is time. A director can create huge shifts in emotion with a jump-cut or an edit but architecture cannot move, so an architect can’t produce those sudden shifts. On the other hand, that stillness is also a magnificent property. Like a mountain, it gives gravitas.

It is absolutely untrue; there are no deaths on our site whatsoever. I sued someone in the press for it. You should check your facts.

I didn’t pull out of the Japanese project. It’s a very serious story. It’s a scandal. We won this competition three years ago, it was an international competition entered by many Japanese architects and we won it.

Don’t ask me a question if you don’t want [me] to answer. Let’s stop this conversation right now.

From my first days studying architecture at the architectural association, I have always been interested in the concept of fragmentation and with ideas of abstraction and explosion, where we were de-constructing ideas of repetitiveness and mass production.

Even as a little girl, I wanted to be an architect.

I have to put you right. There's not a single problem in our stadium in Qatar. There's no deaths on our site whatsoever.

Today, our collaborations with other creative industries provide us with an opportunity to express our ideas through different scales and in many diverse media.

I have nothing to do with the workers. I think that's an issue the government—if there's a problem—should pick up. Hopefully, these things will be resolved.

Zaha Hadid

It's not my duty as an architect to look at it. I cannot do anything about it because I have no power to do anything about it. I think it's a problem anywhere in the world. But, as I said, I think there are discrepancies all over the world.

Zaha Hadid

This is a very serious story and it should be reported accurately, and somebody should be interested in it because it's a scandal and it should be reported properly.

Zaha Hadid

Don't ask me a question when you can't let me finish it. Then I won't say anything
