Zaha Hadid Dies In Miami; Was Working On One Thousand Museum & 2000 Biscayne

Architect Zaha Hadid has died aged 65, according to a statement from her architecture firm.

She suffered a heart attack early this morning while being treated for bronchitis in a Miami hospital.

Hadid owned a condo in Miami Beach, and was frequently seen around town. She designed the 62-story One Thousand Museum on Biscayne Boulevard, which remains under construction.

According to Miami Condo Investments, Hadid has been working with Verzasca Group for months on plans for an iconic condo tower to be developed at 2000 Biscayne Boulevard, which could end up being her final project.

This past week I read many comments about the lack of vision for Iconic skyscrapers in our skyline. Zaha Hadid was a personification of that vision and she will definitely be missed. 1000 Museum was her baby and it will stand as an example of what she envisioned for Miami – My condolences go out to her family… Life is short, make every day count.

May she rest in peace. 1000 Museum will be the most beautiful building in our skyline. Thank you Zaha for leaving such an iconic tower for us to ponder on.

Hopefully her legacy for Miami will be to have raised the bar of high rise architecture as a result of 1000 Museum and the undisclosed project she was working on with Verzasca Group. RIP Zaha…..

Sad day, indeed. As to the Zaha tower at the former City Hall site, I can hardly substantiate that, but I did hear that (and saw renderings) a few months ago. Her Miami towers will be like phoenixes rising.

Zaha, thank you for giving us and the city of Miami such a beautiful looking tower. I hope that you inspire other architects to follow in your creative designs for the future of our skyline.

I was so shocked and dismayed to receive this news. As a long time admirer of Zaha’s work, I can only feel that the.architecture world will shine a little less brightly now that she has left us. A true visionary and genius; boundlessly creative, fearless and determined, she proved that the seemingly impossible can, in fact, sometimes be possible. RIP.great lady.

Sad. My condolences. I wonder if she passed at Mt. Sanai hospital in Miami Beach. Same place Maurice Gibb ( Bee Gees ) passed in 2012 at age 62. There were a lot of questions and I think a lawsuit regarding malpractice.
