Zaha Hadid’s firm committed to Eleftheria Square project

Zaha Hadid's plan for Eleftheria Square

A letter to Nicosia Mayor Constantinos Yiorkadjis from the Director of the design studio ‘Zaha Hadid Architects’ Patrik Schuhmacher assured that the renowned architect’s company was committed to the Eleftheria Square project.

Zaha Hadid, who designed the square’s revamp, died suddenly last week aged 65 after contracting bronchitis.

In the letter Schumacher confirmed the company’s commitment to the Cyprus project.

“That is what Zaha would want,” he wrote. “If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or one of our directors.”

Hadid designs include the London Aquatics Centre used in the 2012 summer Olympics and other major projects worldwide.

In a statement following her death Yiorkadjis conveyed his condolences to Hadid’s family and to her firm. “We are saddened by the fact she will not be able to see the Eleftheria Square project come to fruition. Yet she leaves behind an important legacy thanks to all the wonderful projects she has designed across the world, including Eleftheria Square,” he said.
