Google doodle honours architect Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid was one of Britain’s most renowned architects, known for her modern designs, which often were formed from a single curve of concrete.

Today, Dame Zaha’s legacy is being honoured with a Google Doodle. This is because on the 30 May 2004 she became the first woman to win the coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize.

Here are just a few of some her best-known buildings:
