Zaha Hadid, innovative and brilliant architect, dies aged 65
Financial Times
31 March 2016
Quote:
Breathtaking projects established her as versatile and original designer

Dame Zaha Hadid, one of the most inventive and successful architects of the modern age, died on Thursday at the age of 65.

Hadid was a striking and strident figure, an architect always convinced of her own genius and whose faith was justified by an output embracing some of the most original and breathtaking works of contemporary design.

Born into a prosperous Baghdad family in 1950, Hadid came to study at London’s Architectural Association in the 1970s. Her intense paintings of constructivist-influenced cityscapes became objects of veneration in their own right — setting out a radical agenda before she had built anything.

What's the status concerning the Cycle Superhighways in London? Are they working or are people still dying on the streets like in a third world country?

...It's not the perfect solution to the whole problem, but it's certainly a good start! A new superhighway going from Westminster to Canary Wharf opens at the end of this month:

Although placing a cycle lane on the Westway flyover , leaves a lot to be desired.

You're right, it is the old one - the updated one has a simpler top. i was looking at out-of-date information.

Olympic Park and Elephant & Castle housing schemes merge to form £1.4bn company

he investors behind residential schemes at the Olympic Park in Stratford and Elephant & Castle have merged the developments to create a £1.4bn vehicle for rented homes.

Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company, which is owned by the State of Qatar, property firm Delancey, and Dutch pension fund asset manager APG have merged the assets to create a new company with 4,000 homes, 1,500 of which are already built.

The partnership said its ambition was to become the leading player in the delivery of homes for rent in London and other major UK cities over the next few years. The merger is conditional upon regulatory approval. All of the homes will be managed and leased through Get Living London, an existing management and letting platform.
