Awesome Architecture: The MAXXI Museum by Zaha Hadid

Most of the famous architects have always been men. There was a time when Architecture was just for the men, was a not a choice course for women to take up in university. Those days are long gone, many women have now stepped up to the plate, and have shown excellence in design as architects. I remember in architecture school, many of the famous architects whose works we studied were men. Then we studied the works of Zaha Hadid. Her designs are modern and groundbreaking. We were so proud of her when we studied her works back in architecture school, she was the only female architect that I knew who had a great contribution to the global architecture scene. Go women architects! :)


I came across this awesome building by Zaha Hadid.  


So here's more about her winning design. I love the architecture, awesome play of forms, and lines. :) 



The MAXXI - National Museum of the 21st Century Arts is a national museum dedicated to contemporary creativity, located in the Flaminio neighbourhood of Rome, Italy. It is managed by a foundation created by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. It was designed as a multidisciplinary space by Zaha Hadid and committed to experimentation and innovation in the arts and architecture.
