Zaha Hadid has just become the first woman to win the coveted Design of the Year award. She has not only won in the category of architecture, but it is the first time that an architectural project wins Design of the Year by the Design Museum London. Awardees also fall into other categories: digital, fashion, furniture, graphics, product and transport.
Hadid has won the award with the project she designed for the Centre Heydar Aliyeven Baku (Azerbaijan), a magnificent cultural center with a lightweight structure, which defines a space used as a museum and an exhibition hall.
