Born in Baghdad, Iraq in 1950, Zaha Hadid studied mathematics at the American University in Beirut before moving to London to study at the Architectural Association School of Architecture.

Since starting her own practice in 1980, Hadid has become world renowned for her work which are often characterized by sinuously curving shapes and modern elongated forms. She was also the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize — aka the Nobel Prize of Architecture — in 2004.

Which such photogenic lines and dynamic shapes, we just had to search Instagram for photos of her work. Here’s what we found!
