Zaha Hadid's Z car.
The Design Museum in London features a full scale exhibition of Zaha Hadid's architectural plans, domestic products, furniture, paintings and sketches revealing the diverse range of her work. Zaha Hadid has over 25o staff currently working with her and they have over 5o projects running simultaneously for clients across the world in China, Singapore, Istanbul and Dubai. One of her most stunning exhibits at the Design Museum is her Z car; a concept which fuses art and transport. The design has however been subject to severe criticism as being a vanity project which could do nothing but look good. Zaha proved her critics wrong when her maverick agent Kenny Scachter found a manufacturer in Monaco who plans to make the three wheel art road worthy.
