Google honors legendary architect Zaha Hadid with doodle

Google Doodle commemorated the life and achievements of legendary architect Zaha Hadid on Wednesday.

The visionary Iraqi-British architect was considered one of the greatest in the world during her life. Hadid's unique style became iconic, challenging tradition and embracing the abstract.

Throughout her career, she shattered the glass ceiling, winning awards and achieving things that no woman architect had before.

Google's Doodle was released specifically to commemorate the historic day when Hadid won the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004. She became the first woman to receive the award.

She was also the first woman to receive the Royal Gold Medal in architecture by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2016, StepFeed writes.

Hadid died in March of 2016 from a sudden heart attack at age 65. With projects in progress around the world, including stadiums for Qatar's 2022 World Cup, Hadid's legacy will live on for years to come.
