The final commission of her career...
BRITs 2017 statuette

The BRIT Awards have unveiled next year's Zaha Hadid designed statue.

The architect and all round creative inferno passed away earlier this year, but not before accepting the commission to design a statue for the BRIT Awards.

Following her death, Zaha Hadid's colleagues and collaborators completed work on the statue based on her initial comments.

Zaha's team produced five statues, representing diversity - the statues are different, yet all connected. Jason Iley said:

“We are delighted with the finished statues. Like Zaha, they are innovative and original and have gone well beyond our expectations to create something special that will progress the Award into the future. I’d like to especially thank Maha (Kutay) and Maren (Klasing) at Zaha Hadid Design and Niamh (Byrne) for all of their hard work and support over the last year.”

The first statue will be awarded next week - the winner of the BRIT Critics Choice Award will be unveiled on December 8th.

The BRIT Awards 2017 take place on February 22nd.
