Z.car

Architect Zaha Hadid is best known for futuristic designs. Zaha has designed the central building for BMW's Leipzig plant and the "Mind Zone" in the UK's Millennium Dome. Her Z.CAR project - which debuted at New York's Guggenheim Museum this summer - is a two-seater, powered by hydrogen fuel cell -that has a speed-adjusted wheelbase.

I've been to a modern art museum she designed that is in Ohio. I admire her and would like to see more of Zaha Hadid's work.
