Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid Limited, trading as Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), was founded by Dame Zaha Hadid in London in 1979 and is now a leading global consultancy with studios in London, Hong Kong, Beijing, New York, Dubai, and Mexico City.

Zaha Hadid’s pioneering vision redefined architecture for the 21st century and captured imaginations across the globe. Each of her projects transformed notions of what can be achieved in concrete, steel, and glass; combining her unwavering optimism for the future and belief in the power of invention with advanced design, material and construction innovations.

Working with clients that have global reputations for excellence, Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) continues Zaha’s legacy with a repertoire of projects that have captured imaginations across the globe. Receiving the highest honours from civic, professional and academic institutions worldwide, ZHA is one of the world’s most consistently inventive architectural studios— and has been for four decades.

ZHA have a growing track record designing and delivering major transport projects. As designers with a breadth of experience in a wide range of sectors, we approach our transport projects with a holistic perspective.

Over the past twenty years, our portfolio of transport-related projects has grown significantly and we have embraced new challenging and compelling briefs, expanding our international reach. Ranging from Airports to bridges and transport oriented project, our portfolio of “architecture in Motion” includes among others the Naples Afragola Railway station completed in 2017, the Beijing Daxing airport completed in 2019, and the Nordpark Cable Railway in Innsbruck completed in 2007. More recently, ZHA portfolio includes the Ülemiste Joint Terminal (37,900m2) for the Rail Baltic railway in Tallinn, the crucial starting point of the Rail Baltic Line which connects Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius with the European high-speed rail network; Fornbuorten and Fornebu Senter metro stations, which are two of six major stations planned for the new 8km Fornebubanen metro line in Oslo (due 2025). ZHA has also won recently the project for the Vilnius Railway station regeneration (image above) due to commence in 2023.
