I believe that you can never know too much. Knowledge is power and I appreciate and I love to read and watch out for any opportunity to learn about anything and everything. It is for this reason that I love Google Doodles. Google Doodles are the animations that Google displays on their homepage. Almost everyday, there is always a google doodle that celebrates something or someone and I especially loved today’s doodle.
Today, Google celebrates the work of Zaha Hadid, an architectural wizard who basically was a pioneer in modern architecture. I am not really much of an architectural follower( I can’t think of a better word right now). I can’t tell you anything about it and you will not see me buying a copy of Architectural digest. However, I appreciate the art of it. I love looking at buildings that are just art and I appreciate the process that goes into it all.
So, I was interested to see the work of this amazing woman and I have to tell you that her work is spectacular. Her buildings are some of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Her mind was so creative and so technical and so beautiful. I was just in awe of the stuff that I saw and I wished I had known about her sooner and I appreciate Google for giving me an opportunity to know about this architectural genius.
I will leave some photos of her buildings below so that you guys can feast your eyes on the magic that is Zaha Hadid.
