Sisters are doin' it for themselves. Yesterday Zaha Hadid was announced as the first female recipient of the Priztker Architecture Prize. Zaha Hadid, an Iraqi born British citizen has been rumoured to take the prestigious prize for some time. Hopefully, Ms Hadid will not be the lone female laureate, and that in the future, other talented female architects will be recognized. Up 'til now, the Priztker club had been a decidedly male dominated group. The prize was first awarded in 1979 to Philip Johnson.
