ZAHA HADID NAMED NEW LONDONER OF THE YEAR

Dame Zaha Hadid was honoured at a ceremony organised by New London Architecture

The British-Iraqi architect was given the New Londoner of the Year title for her contributions to the design industry in the UK and abroad at the annual New London Awards on Tuesday. Her most famous work in the capital includes the London Aquatic Centre and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery. 

The awards also celebrated the city’s most impressive architectural projects from the last 12 months. The overall winner was Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, which was crowned London’s best building. Since being transformed from a derelict Grade II listed property, Raleigh Hall will now provide a permanent home dedicated to black heritage in Britain. 

Other winners included the Garden Bridge by Heatherwick studio, which was named the best forthcoming scheme in the Transport & Infrastructure category and Blackhorse Lane in Waltham Forest, which was awarded the Mayor’s Prize for redefining the streetscape outside of central London.
