Zaha Hadid consistently pushes the boundaries of architecture and urban design. Her work experiments with new spatial concepts, intensifying existing urban landscapes in the pursuit of a visionary aesthetic that encompasses all fields of design, ranging from urban scale to products, interiors, and furniture. While she is best known for her seminal built works—the Strasbourg Tram Station; the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati; and in Germany the Vitra Fire Station in Weil am Rhein, the BMW Central Building in Leipzig, and the Phaeno Science Center in Wolfsburg—her central concerns involve a simultaneous engagement in practice, teaching, and research. She was the 2004 Laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize.

JT LeRoy is the author of the novel Sarah, the story collection The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, and the novella Harold's End. He was the associate producer of Gus Van Sant's film Elephant, winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival, and is writing an original screenplay for another film to be directed by Van Sant.
