Zaha Hadid Architects to design subway stations in Ukrainian Dnipro

Top British company Zaha Hadid Architects will design new subway stations in Ukrainian city of Dnipro.

"Today we signed a contract with the Zaha Hadid Architects on design of Dnipro subway stations," Dnipro city mayor Borys Filatov posted on Facebook.

Zaha Hadid (1950 - 2016) was an Iraqi-British architect, the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the first and only woman to be awarded the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Her major works include the aquatic centre for the London 2012 Olympics, Michigan State University's Broad Art Museum in the US, the Heydar Aliyev Center (Baku), and the Guangzhou Opera House in China. Several of her buildings were still under construction at the time of her death, including the Al Wakrah Stadium in Qatar, a venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The Zaha Hadid Architects opened in London in 1980.
